Awards for Excellence 2013

As African companies gain prominence, they need the services of committed and sophisticated pan-regional banks. In Africa, this year, Citi fulfilled that role better and more consistently than its rivals, despite other regional banks often having more assets in individual countries.

Whether it was copper mines and breweries in Zambia, power companies in Kenya and Algeria, airlines in Ethiopia, consumer and energy firms in Nigeria, or the maintenance of facilities for platinum producers in South Africa, Citi has been there, often with innovative solutions.
