He said the awards further demonstrate Stanbic IBTC’s strength and desire to consistently provide best-in-class financial services solutions across all market segments by leveraging on the expertise and rich heritage of the Standard Bank Group, to which Stanbic IBTC Holdings belongs.
“These awards are testament to our capabilities and competences across all business segments, and speak to our unwavering dedication to consistently deliver innovative and robust solutions to our clients,” Sotubo stated.
The Global Wealth and Society programme opened in London in 2018, according to the promoters, out of the belief that wealth can be a force for good. As such we look for instances everywhere in the world where wealthy individuals, institutions and funds were targeted to make an impact in their local communities or the world at large.
