Absa, majority-owned by Barclays, has won two awards for its Islamic Banking services from Professional Management Review-Africa (PMR-Africa) magazine.
The accolades in the categories of Business and Personal Banking reflect the result of an annual survey of more than 200 leaders in the Muslim business community in South Africa, including business owners, managing directors and company directors.
They were presented at PMR-Africa magazine's Muslim Business Community Awards, which was organised to recognise the Muslim business community's contributions to the country's economy.
Maria Ramos, Absa Group Chief Executive, said: "We regard these awards as a symbol of Absa Islamic Banking's commitment to the development of the Islamic financial sector and the respective communities in the country.
The award also positions the business community as potential investment partners for local and foreign investors and measures the competencies of these business, including their brand awareness, in the market."
