Standard Bank recognised for excellence across Africa
Community Coordinator

As in previous years, we have, once again, been recognised for excellence at the 2016 EMEA Finance African Banking Awards, walking away with 16 awards in total, including Best Investment Bank in Africa for the ninth consecutive year.


According to Bill Blackie, Head of Investment Banking at Standard Bank, the awards are a testament to our sustained investment in understanding Africa’s complex and varied banking, transaction and regulatory landscapes from a client perspective. They also prove that our ability to navigate complex financial environments is recognised by the banking community and public at large.


Besides the coveted Best Investment Bank in Africa Award, additional accolades included:


  • Best Investment Bank in Angola, Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia
  • Best Foreign Investment Bank in Nigeria
  • Best Debt House in Nigeria (Stanbic IBTC)
  • Best Local Bank in South Africa
  • Best Broker in Rwanda and Uganda (SBG Securities)


To date, Standard Bank Group has delivered a number of transformative deals, reflecting our commitment to drive growth on the continent we call home. In addition, our sector expertise, on the ground presence and established transactional capability has enabled us to identify and leverage ongoing opportunity – all contributing to the stellar reputation we have throughout Africa and abroad.
