RMBN wins merchant banking awards
Rand Merchant Bank Nigeria (RMBN) has emerged the winner of the Business Day Merchant Bank of the year award.
The RMB Nigeria Chief Executive Officer and Regional Head, West Africa, Michael Larbie, said: “We are proud of our growth and overall financial performance. RMBN will continue to focus on its clients and partner with them to develop new products and solutions.
“We intend introduce a wider range of products to suit all our clients’ needs and through that capture their mind share and become a go-to partner for advice, structured financing, lending and trade solutions. We expect to consolidate on our client relationships and position ourselves as a trusted, hard thinking and solutionist adviser and financier”.
He said that the bank’s vision and primary business objective is to create sustainable value, unique solutions and superior economic returns for our clients and shareholders.
The bank has over 15 years of transactional experience in Nigeria, ranging from advisory roles on infrastructure projects, mergers and acquisitions to the funding of various transactions across multiple sectors.
“We have an extensive pool of investment banking talent, including fixed income, currency and commodities experts who understand the Nigerian and broader African landscape. Over the past five years, we have created a core client base of solid local companies, multinationals and financial sponsors.
“Using a targeted approach, we have meaningfully supported our clients through different economic cycles and will continue to do so,” he said.
As part of the corporate and investment banking division of the FirstRand Group, our business strategy leverages a market leading origination franchise to deliver an integrated value proposition to corporate and institutional clients across Africa.
RMB has representative offices and subsidiaries in 10 other African countries, the UK, India, and China, and access to a network of retail banks in 25 African countries.
With considerable underwriting capacity, due to RMBN’s ability to trade off the balance sheet of the FirstRand Group, RMB Nigeria is able to partner with corporate institutions and the public sector to offer a full range of corporate and investment banking services and assist with trade and investment flows between Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Nigeria and other African Countries.
