Bank Hapoalim is Israel’s best bank, according to Euromoney magazine. This is the latest in a string of awards for Bank Hapoalim this year, after it won similar recognition from international magazines The Banker and Global Finance.

Euromoney editor Clive Horwood said the bank was rewarded for posting strong results in 2011, including a 25 percent increase in net profits, a 10% increase in deposits and a 12% return on equity. The bank also continued to improve its capital- adequacy ratio, he said, and demonstrated its renewed leadership in Israel’s banking sector despite operating in a challenging environment.
