Metrobank Chairman Arthur Ty, President Fabian Dee, members of the Board of Directors, ladies and gentlemen, good evening and happy anniversary!
With almost six decades of institutional history marked by banking excellence, I can tell the men and women of this organization that indeed, “You’re in good hands with Metrobank.”
At 57, Metrobank is one of the biggest and best managed banks in the country. This is highlighted by Metrobank’s strong balance sheet, adherence to global banking standards, and an emphasis on corporate social responsibility.
I am glad that you decided to move forward in your path of excellence by further enhancing your brand through the launch of your “Meaningful Banking” campaign, which puts customers at the heart of everything that you do.
I believe a bank is on the right track if it puts the needs and aspirations of its customers at the center of every product and service.
I appreciate this thrust by the Metrobank especially in light of the Bangko Sentral’s own initiative to bring the central bank closer to our people.
I look forward to enhanced collaboration between the BSP and Metrobank both in advancing consumer welfare and in fostering the overall stability of the banking system.
With 57 years of success and a transformation journey to meaningful banking, the men and women of Metrobank have many reasons to celebrate.
Thus, I offer this toast to the men and women of Metrobank. Here is to many more years of “Meaningful Banking!” Cheers and happy anniversary! (TOAST)
