Stanbic Bank Botswana, Corporate and Investment Banking has been awarded the “2018 Best Trade Finance Bank in Botswana” by Global Finance, one of the world’s most prestigious business magazines. The accolade serves as yet another testament to the Bank’s continued growth in the local market and this accolade adds to several Global Awards received by the Bank.
The selection process in each of the 94 countries worldwide, involved a review of trade transaction volumes, scope of global coverage, international presence, customer service, competitive pricing and innovative technologies with further consideration on turnaround time, reliability, service delivery and in-depth knowledge of their local market. Candidates for consideration include banks, insurers, law firms, and government bodies who also engage in cross-border trade activities.
Stanbic Bank Botswana Head of Corporate and Investment Banking Sheperd Aisam said, “This is a monumental achievement and affirms our relevance to our clients and the market we operate in. The Banks expertise in Trade Finance supported by deep industry knowledge and an understanding of our unique client needs have earned us such an accolade which demonstrates our clients’ trust in us, and a veritable inspiration for us to nurture and constantly grow.”
“We continue to introduce new and bespoke trade finance capabilities to Botswana leveraging off the Standard Bank Group, the largest Bank in Africa by geographic representation and assets. In June 2017 Stanbic Bank Botswana successfully facilitated a Trade Finance conference intended to continuously drive trade finance awareness as the Bank continuously strives to partner with clients on their growth journeys.”
