Maybank has shortlisted four agencies for its creative account.
The agencies are Rapp, Ogilvy & Mather, Grey and Leo Burnett.
Around five agencies pitched initially.
Sources told A+M, the winning agency will be tasked with the regional corporate brand mandate. The markets it covers include Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines.
The banking giant has called for a pitch after the contract with its incumbent agency FiveSixSeven (formerly known as Refuel Network), comes to a close.
A+M understands that the pitch will be held on 7-8 October and the results will be released in December.
Maybank completed its regional media pitch earlier this year and retained Zenith as its agency.
