Qorus and Accenture Announce Winners of 2022 Banking Innovation Awards

Awards celebrate the best new ideas and practices transforming banking

BARCELONA, PARIS, NEW YORK, and HONG KONG; Dec. 1, 2022 – Qorus, a global association for retail financial institutions, and Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today announced the winners of the ninth annual Qorus-Accenture Banking Innovation Awards during a live ceremony in Barcelona.

The awards serve as a catalyst for innovation in the banking sector by honoring the best ideas and practices transforming the industry for the benefit of banks and customers alike.

The awards competition attracted more than 680 entries from 57 countries, with applicants ranging from agile start-ups to the world’s largest financial institutions. Winners were selected across eight categories through a peer-based voting process combined with a panel of judges from leading global financial firms. Criteria that judges considered included originality; strategic capacity to generate a long-term competitive edge and return on investment; and adaptability for use in other markets and countries.

The winners of the Qorus-Accenture Banking Innovation Awards 2022 are:

“The Qorus-Accenture Banking Innovation Awards aim to foster meaningful innovation within the sector by rewarding impactful ideas and sharing successful experiences,” said John Berry, Qorus CEO. “We are seeing a continuous transition from transactional-based financial institutions to data-driven organizations, which is critical for improving customer services. At the same time, banks are focusing their efforts on enhancing the customer experience: simplifying processes, personalizing offers, and enabling end-to-end self-service. We also, encouragingly, witness an undeniable willingness within banks to tackle environmental and societal improvement.”

David Cordero, who leads Accenture’s European Banking practice, said, “This year’s winners illustrate how banks are embracing technology to create new business models and transform the way products and services are delivered. Given the current macro environment, we think rising interest rates could be the next innovation catalyst for the industry, spurring banks to reimagine deposit accounts and other product lines to focus on the broad financial needs of customers.”
