The Co-operative bank has been named the best bank in Kenya at this year’s Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Finance Awards.
The EMEA Finance Awards recognize financial institutions which through their client focus and sound leadership, continue to increase profitability, deliver affordable credit to the retail and wholesale markets and support local and transnational corporations do business.
The awards gala was held on the 5th of December 2019 at The Law Society, London, with Co-op Bank represented by Head of Investor Relations & Strategy James Kaburu and Bank Economist Anthony Muli.
“We are delighted to have been recognized with the prestigious EMEA Finance - African Banking Awards 2019, which vindicates our business model that uniquely combines world-class expertise and capabilities with deep-rooted local experience, enabling us to deliver market-leading solutions to our customers in Kenya," said Mr. James Kaburu.
Co-operative bank was recently named the overall winner of the Kenya Bankers Association (KBA) 2019 Sustainable Finance Catalyst Award.
Commenting on the recent accolades, the Group Managing Director & CEO, Dr. Gideon Muriuki said, “As a bank that is predominantly-owned by the 15 million-member Co-operative Movement, we are inclusive by design, which has not only enabled us to deliver shared prosperity today, but also helped us build an awareness and prudence to avoid making decisions that may put future generations in jeopardy.”
