In each of four regions, West Africa, East Africa, West Africa and Southern Africa, we are holding separate Awards. With this issue of Banker Africa, we are launching the West Africa Banking Awards 2014. This year we have more than 150 institutions nominated across nine categories:
- Most Socially Responsible Bank
- Best Regional Bank
- Best Agri Bank
- Best Microfinance Bank
- Best Foreign International Bank
- Most Innovative Bank
- Best Commercial Bank
- Best Retail Bank
- Best Investment Bank
- Best SME Bank
Those institutions short-listed are not necessarily the largest, rather they are the best! The Awards are designed to reward innovation and the ability to gain market share not simple size.
POLLS OPEN 24 November 2014
As always the winners will be selected by the registered readers of CPI Financial products and services – in other words, your peers in the financial services industry. Voting for the Banker Africa West Africa Banking Awards will commence on our website www.cpifinancial.net on 24 November 2014 and will run to 23 December 2014.
Each shortlisted entry will be automatically linked to the institution’s own homepage online. In addition you may wish to read supporting material for the specific Award where provided by the shortlisted institutions before casting your votes. Once voting closes, the results will be tallied and revealed in the subsequent edition of Banker Africa.
The core philosophy of CPI Financial, the publisher of Banker Africa, is transparency, ensuring accurate reporting of economics and financial matters, the factors determining the future of the banking and finance community and the business deals driving the industry forward. Our Awards programmes are designed to reward and promote excellence and competition in the drive to set new standards in the industry in quality of service, best practice and financial performance.
The financial institutions that win one or more of the Banker Africa Awards in 2014 and in future years will be those offering best-in-class services that meet the needs and exceed the expectations of their customers. They will, truly, be winners.
