The Co-operative Bank has been feted as the Best Bank in Kenya 2018 at this year’s EMEA Finance Awards.
The EMEA Finance Awards are given to banks which, through their client focus and steady management, continue to increase profits, deliver credit to the retail and wholesale markets, and support local and transnational corporations do business.
The award gala was hosted in London, with Co-operative Bank Head of Investor Relations & Strategy James Kaburu and Co-op Bank Economist Anthony Muli attending to receive the award.
“We are delighted to have been recognised with the prestigious EMEA Finance – African Banking Awards 2018, which vindicates our business model that uniquely combines world-class expertise and capabilities with deep-rooted local experience, enabling us to deliver market-leading solutions to our customers in Kenya, said Mr. James Kaburu.
The bank has since 2014 been implementing what they refer to as the “Soaring Eagle” Transformation Agenda with a clear focus on improvement in operating efficiencies, sales force effectiveness and innovative customer delivery platforms.
