In
a citation at the awards, “The Banker” noted the fast pace growth in UBA
Senegal’s profitability.
 “Since
first becoming profitable in 2011, two years after it started operating, UBA
Senegal has come a long way. The subsidiary of Nigeria’s United Bank for Africa
made net profits of $2.8m in 2011. A year later, these rose to more than $8m,
amounting to a hefty return on equity of 50% and making it more profitable than
some of its far larger rivals in the West African country”.
The
magazine also noted that “UBA Senegal has become one of the fastest growing
banks in the Senegalese market over the past three years. UBA has been able to
achieve this stellar performance by leveraging on the strength of the group to
support key sectors of the economy, such as energy, trade and services.
