United Bank for Africa Plc. (UBA) has been named Africa’s best bank in the digital category at the prestigious Euromoney awards in London.
The bank in a statement Thursday said the latest addition to its growing list of enviable laurels is an affirmation of its recent investment in cutting edge technology, one of which gave birth to Leo, the chat banker that has disrupted banking across Africa.
“The award will further spur the bank to do more in meeting the needs of customers with unrivalled services,” says Kennedy Uzoka, group managing director and CEO of UBA.
According to him, the recognition “only goes to show that our resolve in continuing to deploy innovative solutions that place customers first, using cutting edge technology for their collective satisfaction and excellent banking experience is important to us.”
The Euromoney award, which is a recognition of innovative products and services introduced by the bank in recent times and targeted towards meeting customer needs, comes on the heels of recent awards to UBA, including Finnacle Client Innovation Awards and Best Bank Awards won by five of its subsidiaries across Africa by the Bankers Magazine. UBA was also declared the best Bank in Africa in 2017.
Receiving the award at a well-attended event in London, Uzoka, appreciated the organizer’s for the recognition, noting that UBA’s dedication to hard work and particular emphasis to offering quality services to customers are being acknowledged, adding that the award affirms the bank’s strong management and unmatched commitment to service excellence.
