The Co-operative Bank has been named Best Bank in Kenya at this year’s African Banking Awards –
2020 organized by EMEA Finance. This is the third time around, having won again in 2018 and 2019.
The EMEA Finance Awards recognize financial institutions which, through their client focus and
sound leadership, continue to increase profitability, deliver affordable credit to the retail and
wholesale markets, and support local and transnational corporations do business.
This latest Best Bank in Kenya Award comes in quick succession to recent accolades that saw the
bank’s Energy Manager Albert Ouma named ‘Energy Manager of the Year in Sub Sahara Africa’ by
the global Association of Energy Engineers for his outstanding accomplishment in promoting the
principles and practices of energy management.
Commenting on the recent accolades, the Group Managing Director & CEO Co-operative Bank, Dr.
Gideon Muriuki said, “As a bank that is predominantly-owned by the over 15 million-member Co-
operative Movement that is the face of Kenya, we are inclusive by design, which has enabled us to
not only deliver shared prosperity today but also helped us build awareness and prudence to
avoid making decisions that may put future generations in jeopardy.”
