The November issue of Africa Global Funds focuses on the fifth annual AGF Africa Service Providers Awards.
This year, we and our distinguished judges had to make tough choices in choosing the winners. We have evaluated those service providers who provided outstanding service and support for their clients and the industry overall during the Covid-19 crisis.
Some familiar names cropped up on the awards list, including Standard Bank, SS&C Advent, Investec, Bowmans and AXIS. Find out more about the winners and how to participate in the next Awards edition on p.11.
