An exclusive magazine created for a digital age of banking by Lafferty Group.
The Statement will be much more than a regular banking magazine. It will be full of insights on where the world's best banks are going in the post-COVID age and will be anchored in continuous research among the 1000 banks from over 100 countries that we have chosen as our focus. The core of The Statement will be our global ratings and rankings – all drawn from the proprietary Lafferty 1000 database.
Most important is our star-ratings and these in turn are based on 21 other metrics where banks are scored for culture, strategy, customer focus, digital transformation, board diversity, financial inclusion, climate risk reporting and more. The Best Bank per country rankings will be published in the inaugural issue of The Statement. Every subsequent issue of the magazine will include multiple other ratings and rankings of the 1000 banks, including:
