Standard Chartered has announced that in addition to the Best FX Bank in Gambia Award by Global Finance, it has the second country award this year. At The Banker Awards 2008, Standard Chartered Bank Gambia Ltd won Bank of the Year in Gambia for 2008 - a major recognition of the Bank's efforts this year.

Humphrey Mukwereza, Standard Chartered Gambia CEO, said: "We are delighted to win this award. This is the 3rd time in the last six years that Standard Chartered Gambia Ltd has won this prestigious honour.

This success is further proof of the Right Partner role Standard Chartered Bank in Africa plays in its relationship with its key stakeholders and I would like to thank our loyal customers, regulators, staff and communities for their continuous valued support.

Standard Chartered's strategic intent is to be the world's best international bank, leading the way in Asia, Africa and the Middle East. The Banker Awards 2008 recognises Standard Chartered's leading positions and achievements in these markets. It is a fitting tribute to all the Bank's employees in Gambia who continue to out-serve and out-sell the competition and build on its significant reputation on the continent.
