- GTBank Wins Double Honour at Euromoney
Guaranty Trust Bank Plc has been named ‘Nigeria’s Best Bank’ and Africa’s Best Bank for the SMEs’ during the 2017 Euromoney Awards in London.
Now in its 26th year, the Euromoney Awards for Excellence covers more than 20 global product categories, best-in-class awards and the best banks in over 100 countries around the world.
It recognises institutions that have demonstrated leadership, innovation, and momentum in the markets they operate.
In selecting its recipients, Euromoney combines quantitative and qualitative data to honour institutions that have brought the highest levels of service, innovation and expertise to their customers.
The Euromoney Magazine’s Editor, Mr. Clive Horwood, was quoted in a statement by the lender as saying, “Nigeria went through a difficult year, as low oil prices and capital flight continued to hurt the country’s economy. Many banks struggled as a result of this, but GTBank remained strong, recording significant and enviable financial and non-financial performance.”
The Managing Director, GTBank, Mr Segun Agbaje, said, “We are honored to win the Best Bank in Nigeria award a record eight times and to be recognised as Africa’s Best Bank for SMEs.
