Let’s head over to the other side of the globe for a minute. Shanghai Pudong Development (SPD) Bank, which is ranked 33rd in China, launched their second SPD Bank Global Innovation Jam 2019 this past May 28th. Alongside partners which include Temenos, Teradata, Microsoft and Pactera, SPD Bank evaluated 113 nominated solutions including big data, artificial intelligence, 5G, and blockchain.

Of those innovative solutions, only 12 companies’ solutions were named to a shortlist of finalists. Strands was one of the only two foreign companies that reached the final round of competition, marking a major milestone for the company in the Greater China Market. We are proud to announce that Strands won the bronze award, raising appraisal from SPD for driving a personalized banking experience.  


Congratulations to the Strands Kuala Lumpur branch for their recognition, and the Validata Group, who took home the silver!
