Leading business valuation and strategy consultancy, Brand Finance recently published its Banking 500 Report 2020 , a yearly ranking of the world’s strongest and most valuable banking brands.
The company calculates the value of the brands in its league tables using the Royalty Relief approach – a brand valuation method that involves estimating the likely future revenues that are attributable to a brand.
With over 1,500 brands researched and more than 50,000 respondents surveyed across 29 countries, a total of 19 African banks from five countries made it to the global ranking which is now in its fourth consecutive year. South Africa leads the pack with seven banks, followed closely by Nigeria with five. Morocco and Egypt had three apiece, while Kenya completes the regional list with one bank.
