By Modupe Gbadeyanka
Nigeria’s second non-interest financial institution, TAJBank, has been named the Best Islamic Bank for Marketing & Growth Strategy.
The lender, which secured its operating license from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on July 12, 2019, won this accolade at the 2020 Global Islamic Finance Awards (GIFA).
GIFA celebrates leading financial institutions within the global banking sector setting new industry standards and driving innovation in financial services within their various countries.
TAJBank, widely regarded by industry watchers as a trailblazer, has maintained consistent growth since its inception into the market due to its various innovations in digital and financial services.
Recently, the bank commissioned its fourth office in Sokoto State and also established Nigeria’s first ethical mall, TAJMall, which focuses on providing products and services to meet the evolving needs of its customers.
For industry watchers, emerging as the Best Islamic Bank for Marketing & Growth Strategy is not coming as a surprise when the above achievements are put into consideration.
According to the Managing Director of TAJBank, Mr Norfadelizan Abdul Rahman, “Our vision is to be the leading African financial institution with a reputation for excellent customer service and innovative solutions.”
“This goes well beyond the recognizance in earnings and returns on equity, but also in ensuring that we sustain world class corporate governance standards and continually raise the bar in exceptional customer service delivery,” he said further while commenting on the award.
Mr Rahman noted that, “Awards like this clearly reflects our sustained commitment towards this vision, and motivates us to continuously deploy innovative financial products that wholly empower our customers and serve their needs.”
