A much-anticipated gathering after three years, Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank) recently held its 7th Golf Tournament at Tagaytay Highlands to celebrate partnerships and reconnect with its Japanese clients.
Metrobank is fully committed to being the right partner for the Japanese business community here in the country, both in good times and challenging ones like the recent pandemic. The friendly competition celebrates that kind of partnership with over 45 clients participating in the tournament.
“We will not be in the business of banking if not for our clients’ trust. We believe that they are one of our greatest assets. Hosting events such as golf tournaments is our way of keeping our partnerships tight and meaningful beyond business requirements and meetings. It is also to express our gratitude for trusting the bank throughout the years,” said newly-appointed Metrobank senior vice president and corporate banking group head Anton Yap.
Since the establishment of its branches in Tokyo and Osaka almost three decades ago, Metrobank has been dedicated to nurturing mutually-beneficial business relationships with its Japanese clients. Here in the Philippines, the bank remains as the premier banking partner for Japanese businesses by providing a full range of financial solutions to help their businesses grow and be successful.
“As we see the growth of the Philippine economy normalize, Metrobank continues to move forward with guarded optimism, ensuring that our business remains strong and sustainable. More importantly, we remain committed in guiding our clients and sharing our insights to help them navigate through volatilities,” added Yap.
As in the past years, this event is much more than a golf tournament as it raised funds from the sale of mulligans. Proceeds will go to the chosen beneficiary of the Metrobank Foundation which is Caritas Manila for their urban gardening and community feeding programs.
