By Robert “Bob” Reyes

Yuchengco-led Rizal Commercial Banking Corporation (RCBC) continues to cement its place in the country’s digital innovation landscape as it bags more international recognition.

RCBC’s DiskarTech was given the Best in Service and Solution award by the International Innovation Awards (IIA) 2021 organized by Enterprise Asia, a leading non-governmental organization that promotes the role of entrepreneurship in achieving sustainable and progressive socio-economic development in the region, for its remarkable digital initiatives and inclusive finance solutions.

The IIA recognizes outstanding innovations across different industries worldwide that have exhibited remarkable contributions in the categories of Product, Service and Solution, and Organization and Culture. Winners of each category were judged using a stringent set of metrics and audit interviews to determine how the innovations significantly impacted the communities they serve while at the same time making their businesses sustainable.

Aside from the IIA 2021, RCBC’s DiskarTech was also recognized by the London-based Global Banking & Finance Review as part of The Next 100 Global Awards for 2021.

“In all that we do in DiskarTech, what fuels us is our passion to help our customers in achieving their financial aspirations. This year, we have helped them to understand that almost everything is possible when it comes to digital finance innovations. By 2022, our commitment to our clients is the team’s unrelenting efforts in accompanying more Filipinos towards shared prosperity. These awards motivate us even more to live by our mantra for next year: #KasamAsenso,” according to Lito Villanueva, RCBC’s Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation and Inclusion Officer.

The distinction is given to the top 100 companies that “act as catalysts” in the banking and finance industry through their groundbreaking strategies and achievements, and their leadership and dedication to continue providing excellent innovations that prioritize the needs of their customers.  

RCBC’s DiskarTech made it to the roster of the next top 100 companies for its outstanding commitment to promoting inclusive digital finance in the Philippines, particularly to the mass market.

“Innovation with empathy. This has been the collective mindset we all share in RCBC when it comes to developing and providing digital platforms and solutions for our customers. It is by understanding the needs of the people we serve that RCBC finds its strength as a digitized legacy bank,” added Eugene S. Acevedo, RCBC’s President and Chief Executive Officer.
