Stanbic Bank Botswana has been awarded the prestigious Best Bank in Botswana Award 2018 by Global Finance Magazine. This is the second award in two consecutive years after the bank won Best Bank 2017 award from The Banker Magazine. Being a truly sought-after accolade in the banking industry, this year in fact sees both Standard Bank Group and Stanbic Bank Botswana come out on top in Africa and Botswana respectively.
The great news comes just months after Stanbic Bank Botswana received the ‘Best Trade Finance Provider 2018’ accolade from the same awarding body. “This is a true honour, and we are humbled and grateful. Two years into our three-year ‘Road to Excellence’ strategy, we have driven strong internal efficiencies and capabilities to deliver stronger client experiences. It is such a delight to have this accolade from Global Finance, which affirms the voice of our clients and staff,” said Sam Minta, Acting Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Stanbic Bank Botswana.
“At a time of unprecedented change in the financial services industry, Global Finance’s annual Best Bank Awards continue to deliver a consistent evaluation of financial industry performance, whether in developing products to meet emerging financing needs or designing digital platforms that speed and enhance services,” said Joseph D. Giarraputo, Publisher and Editorial Director of Global Finance.
“The winners are world-class leaders, responding adeptly to shifting political winds, new technologies and changing market conditions.” Global Finance Magazine is an internationally renowned publication. All selections for this award were made by the Editors of Global Finance after extensive consultations with corporate financial executives, bankers and banking consultants, as well as analysts throughout the world.
In selecting these top banks, Global Finance considered factors that range from the quantitative objective to the informed subjective. In addition, a poll of Global Finance’s corporate readership was conducted in order to increase the accuracy and reliability of the results. Stanbic Bank Botswana continues to provide expertise and relationships to assist clients, and negotiate complex financial and regulatory cross-border environments.
This is done through the Bank’s digital journey, customer-centricity and efforts towards providing a universal bank experience. “As Stanbic Bank Botswana, we aim to remain consistent in providing universal banking solutions that help move our people forward. Botswana is our home and we will continue to invest in driving the growth of our communities and clients,” concluded Minta.
