Barclays Bank Ghana, part of the Absa Group, has been adjudged Bank of the Year at the 3rd Chamber Business Awards organised by the Ghana National Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GNCCI).
The award, the GNCCI said, is in recognition of Barclays’ “excellent and outstanding performance in the year 2018”. This includes both financial and non-financial measures such as operational excellence, good governance, business sustainability and its overall strong performance – which contributed to it being the most profitable bank for the second consecutive year.
Earlier this year the bank was named Overall Best Bank in the Ghana Banking League and also as Bank of the Year at the Ghana Business Awards. Internationally, the 2019 Euromoney Cash Management Survey Awards recognised the bank as winner of the Market Leader Award as well as the Overall Best Service in Ghana.
Commenting on the award, the Corporate and Investment Banking Director, Ellen Ohene-Afoakwa said: “We are honoured to be adjudged Best Bank in Ghana. It is a demonstration of the commitment and hard work our team continually puts in to make our business more client-focused, while providing the best solutions to help our clients realise their possibilities.
“Our consistent high performance and sustainable growth confirm our resilience and unique position as a trusted financial partner. As we rebrand to Absa, our customers can look forward to continuous delivery of new and innovative solutions relevant to their unique needs,” Mrs. Ohene-Afoakwa added.
The 3rd Chamber Business Awards is an initiative of the GNCCI, which celebrates the very best and impactful organisations and personalities that have demonstrated excellence in business practice.
