Kenya’s largest bank by assets named country's 2017 Bank of the Year by FT

The Banker Awards recognise top banks across the globe based on annual financial performance, their multi-channel banking strategies and pursuit of financial inclusion.

The bank was particularly recognised for “pursuing sustainable growth and for its efforts at championing financial inclusion”.

The award was presented during the 18th Banker Awards held in London a fortnight ago.

“As a bank we are delighted to be recognised for the work we are doing in pushing the sustainability and financial inclusion agenda,” said KCB Group chief executive Joshua Oigara.

“This award is not only an affirmation that we are on the right path but also poses a challenge for us to keep doing more not just in Kenya but across East Africa,” he said.

The award is another addition to KCB’s growing trophies with the bank recently also winning a number of awards, including the Financial Times’ Best Bank award as well as from the Public Relations Society of Kenya’s (PRSK) Best Corporate Publication of the year award this year.

“These awards are a recognition of our commitment to delivering excellence to our customers. We will continue to innovate and build a trusted and financially strong bank which will remain at the forefront to find new ways to secure the financial future of our customers in this fast changing world,” said Mr Oigara of the three awards.

The Banker is a UK-based economic and financial intelligence publication that is affiliated to the global economic newspaper, the Financial Times.

KCB Group is registered as a non-operating holding company which started operations as a licensed banking institution with effect from January 1, 2016.
