Kenya’s KCB honoured as Africa’s best bank


NAIROBI, (CAJ News) – KENYA Commercial Bank Group has been recognised as the Best Bank in Kenya and the Best Bank in Africa in Corporate and Social Responsibility at the 2017 Euromoney Awards for Excellence.
At the just-concluded event, KCB was honoured for its outstanding financial performance in Kenya and its significant contribution in addressing social problems across East Africa.
This is the third time the Bank has won the globally acclaimed Euromoney Award, the first time in 2005 and later in 2014.
“We have been trailblazers in this region in terms of embedding social responsibility in our business, not because it is what everyone is doing but because it makes business sense for us. We must make a difference in the societies that have given us a license to operate in,” said KCB Group Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director, Joshua Oigara.
“We believe that financial inclusion must be carried out in a holistic manner if it is to have an impact. We are therefore very grateful that our efforts have been recognised,” he said.
The Euromoney Excellence Awards are aimed at recognizing on a global front the efforts financial institutions are making towards improving their financial operation services and implementing strategic core business functions that ensure they are on track towards their immediate business goals.
