Banker Africa - West Africa Awards 2017

Seeking excellence in West Africa

The annual Banker Africa Awards are continent-wide programmes open to all banks and financial institutions in Africa. The aim of the Awards is to recognise outstanding performance and excellence in the financial services industry.

Those institutions short-listed are not necessarily the largest, rather they are the best! The Awards are designed to reward innovation and the ability to gain market share not simple size.

As always the winners will be selected by the registered readers of CPI Financial products and services – in other words, your peers in the financial services industry. Voting for the Banker Africa West Africa Awards will commence on our website on 10 July 2017.

Each shortlisted entry will be automatically linked to the institution’s own homepage online. In addition you may wish to read supporting material for the specific Award where provided by the shortlisted institutions before casting your votes. Once voting closes, the results will be tallied and revealed in the subsequent edition of Banker Africa.


The core philosophy of CPI Financial, the publisher of Banker Africa, is transparency, ensuring accurate reporting of economics and financial matters, the factors determining the future of the banking and finance community and the business deals driving the industry forward. Our Awards programmes are designed to reward and promote excellence and competition in the drive to set new standards in the industry in quality of service, best practice and financial performance.

The financial institutions that win one or more of the Banker Africa Awards in 2017 and in future years will be those offering best-in-class services that meet the needs and exceed the expectations of their customers. They will, truly, be winners.
