EuroMoney Awards for Excellence 2020 named Stanbic Bank Kenya as Kenya’s best investment bank, attributed to the lender’s ability to deliver solutions across a range of products and services to its customers.
The awards recognized the lender’s robust capabilities in client-driven business across debt, equity, mergers and acquisitions, corporate advisory, foreign exchange, and cash management.
This recognition speaks volumes of our track record and is a pleasing achievement in Kenya’s highly competitive investment banking environment, where we are up against both local and international competitors.
