We're thrilled that Euromoney last night named Standard Bank Group as Best Investment Bank in Africa. We also collected Best Bank in South Africa, Best Equity House and Best Risk Manager in Africa.
Regarded as the benchmark awards for financial services globally, the Euromoney Awards for Excellence are now in their 23rd year. This year’s awards process began in April, attracting over 600 submissions from the world’s banks and brokerage houses.
Euromoney’s dedicated research team and awards panel then rated all the submissions on both quantitative and qualitative factors such as key performance indicators, financial ratios and innovation over the 12 month period, to decide the category award winners. See www.euromoney.com for more.
The latest Euromoney awards add to Standard Bank Group’s list of accolades already received so far in 2013. These include: • winning 11 ‘EMEA Finance Achievement’ awards; • the ‘African Deal of the Year’ award for Konkola Copper Mines financing in the 2013 Project Finance Deal of the Year Awards; • ‘Commercial Deal of the Year’ in the 2013 Trade & Forfaiting Review Deals of the Year for arranging finance for commodities trader Export Trading Group; and • being named ‘Best Trade Finance Bank in Africa’ by Global Finance.
