Business Tabloid, an international business magazine, has awarded Nagad, the digital financial service of Bangladesh Postal Department, as the Best Digital Financial Services of 2020.

Every year, Business Tabloid, headquartered in London, recognised companies on the international level, purely based on merits and expertise the company holds in its respective industry, said a press release.

The awards are free to enter and are open to all companies in the globe, regardless of location, size, and ownership. The entries are evaluated by a committee of the publisher, research team, and editorial team of the magazine.

Nominations are evaluated based on various criteria such as innovations, accomplishments, and contributions. About the recognition, Tanvir A Mishuk, Managing Director of Nagad, said, “We are delighted to achieve this award. We consider it as a recognition for our massive initiative aimed at technology adoption to achieve financial inclusion in the country.”

In October this year, Nagad, the fastest growing digital financial service in the country, was selected as the best fintech startup for 2020 by Inclusive Fintech 50, a well-reputed group of global organizations founded by the MetLife Foundation and Visa.
