United Bank for Africa Plc, (UBA) has added another feather to her cap with its recognition as the ‘Best Institution in Digital Banking’ across Africa at the prestigious Euromoney Awards in London recently. This adds further credence to the bank’s growing dominance in this space within the financial services institutions.

The Euromoney Awards ceremony, which was held in July, 2018; covered over 20 global product categories, best-in-class awards in over 100 countries across the world; recognizing institutions that have demonstrated leadership, innovation and momentum in the markets in which they operate. Euromoney’s award recipients, were based on a riding principle of both quantitative and qualitative data to honor those who have brought the highest innovations and expertise to their customers.

The Group Managing Director / CEO, United Bank for Africa, Kennedy Uzoka, appreciated the organisers for this recognition, whilst receiving the award in London, remarking that he was pleased that UBA’s commitment to hard work and insistence on quality services was once again being acknowledged.

Following the presentations, as accolades trooped in, Uzoka went on to commend his indefatigable Staff and Board, as well as great Partners like CWG Plc for supporting the bank in achieving the feat. It is no news that CWG Plc, touted as the largest systems integration company in Nigeria with presence in three other African Countries, has been a reliable partner to UBA for many years.

The recognition of CWG Plc’s contribution to this achievement was humbly accepted by the Group CEO of CWG, James Agada; as he went on to also complement his own team; saying the company’s mission to constantly deploy innovative technology solutions that enabled economic growth was something they should not lose sight of; as even through the products and services rendered to clients like UBA, this dream is being achieved.

Today UBA provides banking services to more than 15 million customers globally; through diverse channels and over a thousand touch points. One that has served it well through its expertise in digital banking, as envisioned by its investment in cutting edge technology and the launch of the Chat banker that has disrupted banking across 15 African countries; showcasing its digital creativity within the financial services industry across the African continent.
