UNITED Bank for Africa Plc has been named Africa’s best bank in the digital category at the prestigious Euromoney awards in London.
The award affirms the bank’s recent investment in cutting edge technology, one of which gave birth to Leo, the chat banker that has disrupted banking across Africa.
Receiving the award at an event in London, the Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, United Bank for Africa, Kennedy Uzoka, appreciated the organizers for the recognition, noting that UBA’s dedication to hard work and particular emphasis to offering quality services to customers are being acknowledged.
According to Uzoka, the award affirms the bank’s strong management and un-matched commitment to service excellence. He said: “This 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. This recognition will further spur us to do more in meeting the needs of our customers with unrivalled services.
“For us at UBA, the award is quite an accomplishment, considering Mark Zuckerberg, CEO Facebook and President Emmanuel Macron of France’s recent endorsement both of which centred around highlighting the distinguishing value of UBA’s leading digital opportunities”.
