On March 26, 2021, stakeholders in the finance industry in Africa will gather at the Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra, Ghana for the 6th edition of the prestigious InstinctBusiness Finance Innovation Awards (IBFIA).

Previously known as the Ghana Finance Innovation Awards (GFIA), the awards scheme has rebranded into IBFIA to identify and reward excellence in the financial industry on an Africa-wide scale.

The event, organised by InstinctWave, Africa’s premium business-to-business (B2B) event company, will reward success, innovations and various experts contributing to the smooth running of the financial services sector in the face of the global pandemic.

IBFIA will also recognise leading finance experts, teams and top finance organisations, whose outstanding leadership and practices have raised the standards of accountability within the profession, showcased brilliance in managing organisations’ wealth as well as promoting economic growth and sustainability.

It will further spotlight those working across the financial industry and finance support service providers, who have worked tirelessly to achieve incredible success for their clients.

Already, the organisers have invited all organisations and bodies within finance and governance across Africa to submit entries for the awards ahead of the ceremony next month, which will have all finance players in attendance.

The chief executive of InstinctWave, Mr Akin Naphtal, said the awards will inspire a new generation of robust work ethics, industry leaders and desired processes in the finance sector.

While speaking on the event, he said, “We are excited to honour and celebrate with organisations at the forefront of promoting economic growth and lifting the veil on individuals and firms that have contributed immensely to the sector.”

According to him, “We cannot underestimate the role of the financial sector and its importance to national development and the development of the entire continent of Africa.

He described the finance industry as a dynamic sector with immense impact on Africa’s overall economy, noting that the relevance of the sector has been seen now more than ever through the innovative ways by which players in the industry have handled the outbreak of the pandemic and kept economic activities running.
