In the November 2015 issue, Global Finance will honor the best Chinese banks and RMB service providers in our exclusive, 8th annual, Stars of China special report.

China is amid an historic transition, rebalancing drivers in its economy away from investment and toward consumption. Its market, the most dynamic in the world, has entered a new phase. As a consequence, resilient, nimble and innovative banks and businesses have emerged in the People’s Republic, establishing new avenues to growth and stepping onto the world stage.

In Global Finance’s Stars of China Awards 2015 we honor these leaders in their respective fields and explain how and why they are building China’s future. Winners will be chosen in the categories shown on the following page, and all will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Beijing in November.
