Purpose and strategy
Our belief in Africa is rooted in the vast possibilities and opportunities it presents. We navigate these opportunities with integrated thinking, aligning our purpose and strategic approach to emerging trends, ensuring that the execution of our strategy creates enduring value.
Africa is our home; we drive her growth.
We live by our purpose to drive sustainable, inclusive growth in Africa through our position as the leading financial services organisation on the continent.
To do this, we focus on 3 strategic priorities:
- Transform client experience
- Execute with excellence
- Drive sustainable growth and value
The Africa of 2023 is a continent that is embracing new opportunities. As it moves to exploit commonalities existing between neighbours, the advantages of intra-Africa trade are taking cooperation between countries to new levels. Trade agreements are gathering momentum, and traditional trade barriers are crumbling.
