RMB and Standard Bank shortlisted in African Banker Awards
Rand Merchant Bank (RMB) and Standard Bank will compete for top honours in the 2016 African Banker Awards, the most prestigious event in Africa’s banking sector, held under the patronage of the African Development Bank.
The awards, open to all African financial institutions, including banks, micro-financiers, investment banks, development finance institutions and other financial services institutions, are now in their 10th year. The winners will be announced at a ceremony scheduled to be held as part of the African Development Bank annual meetings in Lusaka, Zambia on 25 May.
RMB dominates the investment banking and deal entries, with Nigeria's GTBank and Ecobank nominated three times. Other strong contenders include SA's Standard Bank, Tanzania's CRDB Bank, Kenya's KCB, and Morocco's Attijariwafa Bank.
