We are excited to honour and celebrate with organisations at the forefront of promoting economic growth and lifting the veil on individuals and firms that have contributed immensely to the sector,” Naphtal said.

He added that his company believes that the awards will inspire a new generation of robust work ethics, industry leaders and desired processes in the finance sector.
