CfC Stanbic Bank, a subsidiary of Standard Bank Group, will now be known as Stanbic Bank in Kenya following the completion of a rebranding process which began early this year.
CfC Stanbic Holdings Limited will also become Stanbic Holdings Plc, according to a statement from the bank released Monday.
CfC Bank merged with Stanbic Bank in 2008 to form CfC Stanbic bank after Standard bank Group of South Africa acquired majority stake in CfC Bank.
Commenting on the change of name, Stanbic Bank Chief Executive Phillip Odera said the bank’s rebranding follows the Group’s decision to align its operational synergies across its markets.
“This is another affirmation of our commitment to the people of Kenya. Innovation underpins our financial inclusion agenda, and it is innovation, partnerships and access to capital that we leverage to ensure we help deliver an enhanced customer experience.”
“Amongst some of the investments and advancements made by the bank are greater accessibility of products for customers as well as improvement in turnaround time on lending products. We are committed to growth, diversity and improving life.”
