Leading journal for the global wealth industry Private Banker International, has our Wealth and Investment division- Africa’s Most Outstanding Global Private Bank.
Busola Jejelowo, Head, Wealth and Investment, Nigeria
Announced at the 27th Private Banker International Global Wealth Summit and Awards on 13 October in Singapore, this is the third consecutive year the Wealth and Investment division has received this accolade. We believe it speaks to our commitment to building Africa’s most globally relevant wealth management offering.
Presently, Wealth and Investment has a presence throughout South Africa, Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Mauritius, Jersey and London. Combined with the Standard Bank Group’s far-reaching presence and heritage, this international footprint empowers the division with the diversification it needs to lead a globally effective wealth strategy.
Christopher Browne, Global Head of Wealth and Investment at Standard Bank, believes all these advantages are leveraged to provide global wealth solutions that are locally relevant. Our on-the-ground expertise allows our employees to understand country-specific nuances and their impact on the markets in which we operate. In turn, we can support the wealth management ambitions of wealthy individuals and families throughout the continent. Furthermore, we equip the leaders of tomorrow with financial and investment advice through engaging and interactive international Leadership Academies.
“We believe that our combination of targeted service strategies, relevant management models and client-centricity sets us apart as the continent’s leading wealth manager, and we are delighted to see these efforts reflected in internationally recognised awards,” says Mr Browne.
The Private Banker International Award follows Standard Bank Wealth and Investment being recognised as Euromoney magazine’s Africa’s Best Bank for Wealth Management in July, further reflecting consistency in delivering solutions that matter. Other Euromoney awards received include Best Bank in South Africa and Best Bank in Uganda.
