Johannesburg, 10 February 2021 – Standard Bank has been recognised with several awards at the Euromoney Awards 2020, including being named Africa’s best bank for innovative or emerging technology adoption.

As a leading publication covering the growth of international finance, Euromoney’s awards programme is based on its Private Banking and Wealth Management survey, which provides a qualitative review of the best services in private banking, by region and areas of service.  

Standard Bank was ranked twice in the technology – as the leading financial services organisation for innovative or emerging technology adoption in two geographies including South Africa and the African continent.

Furthermore, in the category of NetWorth, Standard Bank ranked as the best bank in South Africa for Ultra-High Net Worth Clients (>US$30m – US$250m). The awards also recognised Standard Bank’s service to clients, naming it as the best bank for Serving Business Owners in South Africa. 

“Standard Bank is delighted to be acknowledged by Euromoney for such important awards, especially within the technology category,” comments Chris Browne, Global Head: Standard Bank Wealth & Investment. “These accolades recognise our leading position as an innovative, digital first bank on the continent. This is key to providing African clients with world class, highly personalised and tailored solutions and experiences.”

Standard Bank Wealth & Investment has made immense strides to harness technology to drive more integrated solutions. This includes the development of the My360 app and WhatsApp-based chatbots, which make it easier to provide clients with the right solutions at the right time and on their channel of choice.

Browne adds: “Our advisory, insurance and investment solutions are tailored to the unique goals and aspirations of high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients in South Africa and across the rest of the continent. These solutions work to preserve the wealth of clients for generations to come, and with the aim of promoting the likes of philanthropy and entrepreneurship.”

One way in which Standard Bank sets itself apart is through the Wealth and Investment Leadership Academies, which empower and educate the families of our clients on the principles of investing, banking and lending, financial planning, leadership and philanthropy. Four different Academy modules have been created, each catering for a different age group. 

With a presence throughout South Africa, as well as in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana, Uganda, Jersey and London, the Wealth and Investment’s international footprint, combined with the Standard Bank Group’s own African and international presence, and over 154-year heritage, empowers the bank with the diversification needed to lead a globally effective wealth strategy.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Standard Bank has received accolades at the Euromoney Awards, highlighting the organisation’s continuous commitment to excellence and world class service.
