Four Nigerian banks - First Bank
of Nigeria Plc, GTBank Plc, Zenith

Africa Plc (UBA), had been
ranked among the top 500
'World Bank Brands' in the
February edition of The Banker
magazine of the Financial Times
Group, London, United Kingdom.
A statement made available to
THISDAY, said First Bank was
ranked as the number one bank
brand in Nigeria and followed
by other commercial banks
mentioned earlier in that order.
According to the statement,
apart from the four, no other
Nigerian bank made the ranking.
The ranking was done by Brand
Finance Plc - a brand valuation
consultancy with support for
business needs in different
areas including technical
valuations for accounting, tax
and legal purposes.
According to the report, First

million and was closely followed
by GTBank with $169 million.
It also said that Zenith Bank had
a brand value of $147 million
while the UBA had brand value
of $121 million.

Top 50 by Total Brand Value by

Africa. South Africa has a total
brand value of $8,207 million
followed by Nigeria's $607

cent of the world's total brand
Chief Executive Officer, Brand

financial crisis "has thrown up
the issue of the brands' origin"
and that "the ones that have
maintained their reputation can
be characterized by country."
