Banker Africa - East Africa Awards 2017

Seeking excellence in East Africa

The annual Banker Africa Awards are continent-wide programmes open to all banks and financial institutions in Africa. The aim of the Awards is to recognise outstanding performance and excellence in the financial services industry.

A panel of judges has revealed the categories of the fourth Banker Africa East Africa Banking Awards, naming some 48 with awards for best institutions in country, and best regionally.

Shortlists are still being compiled by our international team of industry experts and will be published on our site in two weeks’ time!

We don’t choose the winners, you do.

POLLS OPEN 2 April 2017

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 East Africa Awards will commence on our website on 2 April 2017 and will run to 2 May 2017.

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 2017 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.
