The Banking Awards have been held annually since 2006. Their objective is to encourage prudence and stability in the banking sector by recognizing, awarding and celebrating exemplary performers in the sector. Our aim is to draw the attention of the banking public to the performance of the various players in the sector, consequently encouraging competition. The awards are won on a combination of merits, including financial soundness, opinion polls, market re-search and professional assessments. The overall winner, The Best Bank in Kenya, is usually the bank with an all round appeal.

A panel of distinguished local and international judges from various professional backgrounds is selected to decide on the winners. The judges’ decisions are made on the basis of analysis of financial information - statutorily published by the banks and a comprehensive market research.

The Banking Awards 2018, the 13th annual celebration of the banking sector achievements will
