United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc has won the African Investor (Ai) Social Infrastructure Deal of the Year award. The award was announced at the Ai CEO Infrastructure and Sovereign Investment Summit in Cape Town, South Africa.

Now in their 8th year, the highly sought-after Ai Infrastructure Investment Awards formally recognises achievements across the main infrastructure sectors in Africa, and reward the institutions and personalities driving transactions and improving the continent’s infrastructure investment climate.

UBA was given the award for its significant investment in social infrastructure across the continent in building the economic capacity of the communities in which it does its business.

Commenting on the award, Phillips Oduoza, Group Managing Director/CEO, said it was a reflection of the bank’s commitment to supporting the growth of critical sectors of the African economy with its financial expertise and strong balance sheet.
