February 01, 2023

First National Bank (FNB) has been named the "Strongest Banking Brand in the World" in the Brand Finance Banking 500 2023 report.

 The report evaluates the world's 500 largest banks based on independent measures such as brand investment, equity and financial performance data. FNB came out on top with a Brand Strength Index score of 93 (out of 100) and a brand value of US$1,540 billion. 

"Our advice-led approach to financial services offers customers the full benefits of personalized help across our range of solutions," says FNB Group CEO Jacques Celliers. 

"This helps customers make more informed decisions about their finances and ultimately improves their financial well-being." 

FNB Namibia CEO Erwin Tjipuka attributes the award to the hard work and innovation of FNB employees. "Our commitment to deliver intuitive help and tailored financial solutions are amongst the reasons behind this remarkable recognition," he says. 

FNB's commitment to sustainability and financial inclusion also played a role in its strong brand recognition. The bank has implemented various initiatives to support sustainable development and has increased efforts to broaden financial inclusion across Africa. 

FirstRand Namibia Chief Marketing Officer Tracy Eagles says the recent FNB brand refresh continues to build trust with customers. "Our goal is to help build a globally competitive Namibia," she says. 

"Being awarded the Strongest Banking Brand in the World is a measure of our customers' trust that we are doing the right things." 

According to Jeremy Sampson from Brand Finance, "we're pleased to see that brands on the African continent continue to make their presence felt across the world. The Strongest Brand accolade is highly contested, which means any brand that emerges at the top can be proud of its efforts." 

FNB's recent recognition as the "Strongest Banking Brand in the World" follows its award as the Financial Times' Banker Magazine's 2022 Bank of the Year (Namibia) in December 2022.
