Rawbank has the pleasure to announce that it won the 2016 “The Banker” trophy as “Bank of the year in the Democratic Republic of Congo”, awarded by the prestigious magazine Financial Times.
A leader in financial publishing, this magazine awards the best banks in each country. In the DRC, Rawbank has been acclaimed for the performance that it has achieved.
Rawbank bases its leadership on an overall commercial offer for all segments (Retail Banking, Privilege Banking, Commercial Banking and Corporate and Institutional Banking), including partnerships with renowned international institutions such as Shelter Africa and more recently FPM (founded by the PNUD). It is the first bank in the DRC and in central Africa to have obtained a rating from the agency Moody’s.
Its network is undergoing rapid growth and now has 78 branches and counters, and the greatest installed base of ATMs in the DRC (more than 150 units) and nearly 1500 agents.
Its financial soundness is demonstrated by its balance-sheet total, which exceeds one billion dollars, a first in the Congolese banking sector.
Already won in 2009, 2010 and 2011, this award is the fourth win for Rawbank and gives further confirmation of its place as the number 1 bank in the DRC.
The general management of the bank would like to take advantage of this occasion to thank its clientele for its confidence and loyalty. It also congratulates its personnel, who contribute each day to the achievement of its excellence objectives.
RAWBANK will continue to strengthen its leadership in the Congolese banking market, gradually extend its network to the entire country and sustain its results, guaranteeing soundness, trust and reliability for the benefit of its clients.
