"Across the NCB Group, we strive for excellence and consistency, both of which require that we are agile and astute in our planning and decision-making," said Patrick Hylton, NCB Group managing director. "Recognition of this nature, assessed through an independent body, demonstrates strength in performance and expertise of team."

Hylton was expressing pride in his team's accomplishment at the Best Practices Awards Banquet hosted by the Jamaica Stock Exchange last December.

National Commercial Bank Jamaica Limited (NCB) celebrated an important milestone last year, as it marked its 175th anniversary. The year was even more exceptional as various groups and organisations, locally and internationally, lauded the bank with nine awards for its exemplary performance.

Most notable among the accolades received are the Best Financial Services Award from the Jamaica Exporters' Association, which NCB has won for the sixth consecutive year; and the Bank of the Year - Jamaica from The Banker, which NCB has now won for five consecutive years.At the Jamaica Stock Exchange Best Practices Awards, NCB emerged winners of four out of 11 categories, namely: 1) Governor General's Award for Excellence; 2) Corporate Disclosure & Investor Relations, 3) Corporate Governance Policies, for the third consecutive year, and 4) Annual Report. NCB Capital Markets Limited was awarded first runner-up in the category of revenue generation and market activity, for the second consecutive year.NCB was also the 2012 recipient of the prestigious Golden Leader Award for Innovation from The Human Resource Management Association of Jamaica, and Best Bank in Jamaica from Latin Finance, both for the third consecutive year. The Best Pension Fund Manager was also awarded to NCB Insurance Company Limited by the Global Banking & Finance Review.

"These awards are symbols of the commitment of the NCB team to consistently reach for excellence. They also reflect the confidence in how we perform and conduct our business," Hylton said.
