Absa Capital takes Top Dealer honour at ABSIP Awards  

 11/11/2009 
Hot on the heels of its dominant performance at the JSE Spire Awards, Absa Capital, the investment banking division of Absa Bank Ltd, has taken top honours again with Diteboho Khumalo being recognised as the Top Dealer at the 7th ABSIP Financial Sector Awards.

Khumalo won the Top Dealer in Equities/Derivatives/Fixed Income Category. This category recognises a black professional who has consistently delivered against their clients’ mandate of best practice and best execution. The recipient is also expected, by ABSIP, to have the highest level of ethics and professionalism.

“I am very pleased that Diteboho has been recognized in this fashion, as it speaks directly to our desire to attract (and retain) the top talent in the market and remain relevant to our clients,” said Stephen van Coller, Chief Executive of Absa Capital.

“Furthermore, Diteboho’s efforts need to be seen in the context of a winning team. The Fixed Income Sales team has recently received widespread recognition in the UK Banker Awards as well as demonstrating an outstanding performance at the JSE Spire Awards,” added van Coller.

In addition, Justin Ma was shortlisted in the top three of the most hotly contested category within the ABSIP awards – the Top Emerging Talent Award.

These accolades support Absa Capital’s ambition of becoming the leading investment bank in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Association of Black Securities and Investment Professionals (ABSIP) was established in 1995 to address the apparent lack of representation of black professional in the securities and investment industry.
