Standard Bank wins in prestigious 2009 Africa Investor Awards

Standard Bank Group has reinforced its position as the continent’s leading financial institution by scooping the Best Africa Investor Analyst Award in the Banking Sector in the prestigious annual African Investor Awards.

The award went to a team from Standard Bank’s Nigerian subsidiary, Stanbic IBTC Bank comprising Yemi Kale and Muyiwa Oni, and were presented at a gala ceremony held at the Paris Stock Exchange in Paris on 9 March.
Robert van Eyden, Head of Global Research, says: “This proves that Standard Bank is a leading African research house which has the research, analysis capabilities and skilled people strategically placed to offer their clients value-added information and investment services.”

Chris Newson, Chief Executive, Stanbic IBTC Bank, adds: “The nominations and the award also reinforce the Standard Bank belief that operating successfully in multiple markets around the globe requires an on-the-ground presence in key markets, like Nigeria. This ensures that clients gain the benefit of local insights, expertise and benefit from a presence and network in key emerging markets that spans Africa and the globe.”

The African Investor is Africa’s leading international benchmark and index provider, which works closely with the New York Stock Exchange Euronext, the world’s leader for listings.
The awards are open to leading international analysts, financial journalists and investor relations professionals from Africa’s leading publicly traded companies and cover categories ranging from Best Financial News Reporting: Best Financial Reporting Company (open to investor relations professionals within companies) and Best Analyst, which is open to all buy- and sell-side analysts covering African equities.

“We are therefore proud on two levels to have won the 2009 Ai awards as they recognize not only the skills of our people in Africa, but add independent confirmation of the success of our corporate strategy in emerging markets,” says Robert.
