During the 2015 Euromoney Magazine Awards held in London at the Natural History Museum, one of the biggest banks in Africa, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc (GTBank), was awarded the ‘Best Bank in Nigeria.’ The Euromoney Magazine Awards for Excellence covers more than 20 global product categories, best-in-class awards and the best banks in over 100 countries around the world by recognizing institutions that have demonstrated leadership, innovation, and momentum in the markets they operate.

The best-selling and most sought after online business and political news publishers, Tectono Business Review, gathered that in selecting its recipients, Euromoney combines quantitative and qualitative data to honour institutions that have brought the highest levels of service, innovation and expertise to their customers.

The Editor Euromoney Magazine, Clive Horwood, said: “Competition for the awards this year was tough, arguably the toughest it has been since the start of the global financial crisis. In winning this award, GTBank stands out not only because of its stellar performance, but by its ability to define what its core strengths are, abide by these strengths and build its business around them. Banking in the future will be about what you do, as well as what you don’t do. GTBank stands out as Euromoneys’ best bank in Nigeria for its ability to adapt to local situations while maintaining international standards of best practice.”

The Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of GTBank, Mr. Segun Agbaje, while receiving the award on behalf of the Bank, said: “We are humbled and proud to be recognised as the Best Bank in Nigeria. For us, this award is an acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication of our staff, management and Board. It represents our commitment to serving our customers and providing them with value oriented products and services suited to their varied needs. Our desire to always be at the frontier of excellence, enables us remain relevant to our customers and add value to all stakeholders.
Being, the first Nigerian Bank to win this award seven years consecutively, outside of 2013, when we were recognised as The Best Managed Bank in Nigeria, is also an affirmation of our position as a Proudly African and Truly International Institution.”

Mr. Agbaje, while thanking the Bank’s customers for their continuous patronage and terrific support over the years, stated that the Bank will continue to leverage its brand equity to tap into the growth potentials of African economies.
