Southern Africa Awards 2018

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.


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.
