Leading financial services provider, Guaranty Trust Bank has been named Africa’s Best Bank for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) at the 2017 Euromoney Awards which was held in London last week.
The Nigerian-headquartered Bank has been notoriously committed to empowering small business clients by providing food fairs and fashion events that bring together its individual banking customers and a host of small businesses under one roof in recent years.
Through its GTBank Food and Drink Fair, an annual 2-day event dedicated to showcasing businesses under this category to a host of potential clients, coupled with its Fashion Weekend show that allows startups and growing businesses learning from global industry experts and interact with prospective customers, the Bank has managed to expose over a thousand small scale businesses to a wider, pan-African market and offered them the opportunity to grab nuggets of business wisdom on how to grow their brands and enhance profitability.
“we are honoured to win the Best Bank in Nigeria award a record eight times and to be recognized as Africa’s Best Bank for SMEs,” said Mr. Segun Agbaje, the Managing Director of GTBank.
“These awards reflect our progress in building strong, value adding relationships with our customers whilst positioning the bank as the financial institution for Small and Medium Enterprises through our creation of free business platforms that are geared towards promoting enterprise in key economic sectors.’’
