The Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) was awarded as one of the Top 5 Fixed Income Dealing Participants (Rank 5) by the prestigious PDS Group at the recently held 2023 PDS Annual Awards.

PDS conferred the award to BPI for being one of the top performers in 2022 in terms of fixed income volume dealt in the secondary market through the Bloomberg platform.

Jose Teodoro K. Limcaoco, BPI President and CEO, said the bank remains guided by its core values of integrity and customer-focused excellence in its commitment to contribute to the growth and stability of the Philippine financial markets.

“We are honored for being recognized once again by the PDS Group for the work that we do to enable investors to participate directly in the growth of our economy and in the development of the Philippine capital market as we move forward post COVID-19 pandemic. We are committed to provide more strategic insights and better value to our stakeholders and to maintain our position as one of the key players in the country’s capital markets,” he said.

With the theme “Breaking Through Challenges,” the 18th edition of PDS Annual Awards recognized member institutions that have exhibited outstanding performance, leadership, innovation, and overall contribution to the development of the Philippine capital market.

Last year, BPI was also cited as among the Top 5 Fixed Income Dealing Participants (Rank 5) at the 17th PDS Annual Awards.
