Premium Members of the Nigerian-British Chamber of Commerce Fidelity Bank Plc have been named ‘Outstanding SME Supporting Bank of the Year’. Fidelity disclosed that in recognition of its support for micro, small and medium scale enterprises (MSMEs) in the country, it recently clinched the award at the 2020 Marketing & Advertising Award for Excellence.
According to the organisers, Marketing Edge, the bank’s nomination, and subsequent emergence as an award recipient were a product of a review and assessment of its intervention and provision of long-term financing support for MSMEs across the country.
Receiving the award on behalf of the bank, Divisional Head, Brand & Communications, Mr. Charles Aigbe thanked the management of Marketing Edge for the recognition.
“Our long-running support for the growth and development of small businesses in Nigeria stems from our recognition of SMEs as critical agents of economic development and transformation in Nigeria and the world at large,” a statement quoted him to have said.
He noted that the bank had developed a strong multi-faceted SME banking platform, driven by its tailored, low cost transactions banking offerings backed by the requisite one-on-one and cluster focused advisory services and hand-holding support.
