Nine years in a row, FNB named best bank by Banker Magazine
A very austere, Caucasian looking trophy was presented this week to an African bank for the ninth consecutive year by the Banker Magazine published in London.
On Thursday, First National Bank Namibia announced they have been named the best Namibian bank for the tenth time by the magazine. For the past nine consecutive years, they have received this award every year.
FNB Namibia Holdings Ltd Chief Executive, Sarel van Zyl said he is extremely grateful to all stakeholders and shareholders for their unwavering decade-long support. “This award speaks to our commitment to be Namibia’s best bank and create a better world for all. It recognises our service effort and the innovative products and services which we bring to the market and its people.”
Van Zyl added that his bank will continue to execute its People, Partnership, Planet and Profitability mandate and strategy, not only referring to the bank’s consistent growth and solid management despite 2016 being a very challenging year, but also to the bank’s wide involvement in community projects.
“Through driving sustainable long-term shareholder results, and providing modern and innovative products and services, FNB will continue to make banking more inclusive, digitally relevant and affordable to all consumers and businesses,” said van Zyl.
Through the FNB Group’s Foundation Trust, it actively contributes to the development of national priority areas like skills development, education and financial literacy, and community and health. Over the past five years, the Group has invested more than N$100 million in social projects, community development and environmental protection.
