Stanbic Bank Kenya has been named the Best Private Bank in Kenya for the third year running at the 2017 Banker & Professional Wealth Management Global Private Banking Awards that recognises excellence in wealth management.
Commenting on the award, Stanbic Bank’s Head of Wealth and Investment, Anjali Harkoo said that the recognition is a testimony to the lender’s solid track record of providing “bespoke solutions that are globally relevant” yet attuned to the institution’s clients’ goals and ambitions.
“As a business, our focus remains goal-driven plans that take a long-term view of investments, while catering for short-term lifestyle needs,” Hrkoo continued.
The Global Private Banking Awards evaluate banks on the progress they have made in their business growth strategy and how they boost inflows and profits. Lenders are evaluated based on their client relationship management blueprints and how they have adapted portfolio management, asset allocation and product strategy to meet the ever-changing needs of investors.
The award comes shortly after the lender’s Standard Bank Wealth and Investment subsidiary was ranked Africa’s Most Outstanding Global Private Bank for the third consecutive year by Private Banker International, a leading journal for the global wealth industry.
The division was also recognised in the Outstanding Philanthropy Offering category at the 27th Private Banker International Global Wealth Summit and Awards, held in Singapore. Standard Bank subsidiaries in Nigeria and Ghana also won the Best Private Bank award in their respective countries.
The Stanbic Bank Wealth and Investment division has a presence in Kenya, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Mauritius, Jersey and London.
Two weeks ago, Stanbic Bank Kenya was named the Safest Bank in Kenya by the Global Finance publication.
