Caixa, the best bank in Cape Verde - according to international assessment
It is with great satisfaction that Caixa received the news of its election as “Best Bank in Cape Verde” by Global Finance Magazine, the result of its 28th annual list of the best banks in the world. This assessment is based on contributions from industry analysts, executives and technology experts who selected the winners of the World Best Banks 2021 award. All information used was provided by banks and other providers, as well as independent research evaluating objective and subjective factors.
According to Global Finance, the winning banks were the ones that best operate in the global market and meet the sector's specialized needs. It means that they recognized not the biggest but the best, that in general they are concerned with the quality demanded by companies looking for the best suppliers.
For our Chairman of the Executive Committee, Dr. António Moreira, this international recognition is fair, taking into account the criteria underlying the award of this award, which Caixa understands to fully correspond to what it has offered the market. For Moreira, this award is the result of the meritorious and differentiated work that the institution has done in this pandemic period and beyond. This international award praises Caixa as an institution and contributes to the institution's notoriety inside and outside Cape Verde.
Caixa promove encontro com alunos do EBI - Campanha Outubro, mês da Poupança
No próximo dia 31 de outubro, assinala-se o Dia Mundial da Poupança. Como vem sendo hábito, a Caixa tem celebrado a efeméride, com diversas atividades, no âmbito da responsabilidade social, aproveitando a ocasião para promover debates e reflexões sobre a educação financeira e a importância da poupança.
Assim, no âmbito dessa comemoração, a Caixa realizou no dia 14 de outubro, no seu auditório, um encontro com os alunos do Ensino Básico e Integrado (EBI), do Agrupamento II de Terra Branca, turmas de 5ª e 6ª Classe, para a apresentação do Livro “A Poupança do Zito”, uma conversa interativa sobre o tema “Poupança”, porque acreditamos que devemos ter a educação financeira nas nossas vidas desde a tenra idade, sobretudo neste contexto de pandemia e de incertezas que vivemos hoje.
Na ocasião, o Presidente da Comissão Executiva, Dr. António Moreira, disse ser crucial incutir cedo este conceito de Poupança na vida das crianças, de forma a prepará-las para o futuro.
Esta mesma atividade também será reproduzida na ilha de Santo Antão, nos dias 27 e 28 de outubro, além de outras ações de sensibilização e formação dos colaboradores sobre a Educação Financeira.
Caixa signed a collaboration protocol with the University of Coimbra on October 6th, within the scope of the institution's digital transformation project.
The protocol was signed at Caixa's headquarters, in Praia - Cape Verde, with the aim of mutually establishing collaboration for the development of joint activities in different domains, through specific projects within a partnership logic. Also, under the agreement, the University of Coimbra will act through the Department of Informatics Engineering of the Faculty of Science and Technology of the University of Coimbra.
With a focus on innovation technologies, Caixa hopes to implement actions in the field of innovation and technology and contribute to the continued affirmation of these two institutions.
In his speech, the Chairman of the Executive Committee, Dr. António Morreira, said that this partnership is an important bet for Caixa, as it is focused on information technologies, one of the pillars that the institution is committed to. According to the PCE, partnerships with universities are crucial as they are sources of innovation and modernization.
In turn, the Vice-Rector of the University of Coimbra, Professor Doctor João Nuno Calvão da Silva, considered it a great honour to sign the protocol with a financial institution of Caixa's magnitude, having praised the intellectual capacities of the Cape Verdean people which always bets on innovation and also stressed that it is certain that this partnership will yield good results.
For the Executive Director, Eng. Antão Miguel de Morais Lima Chantre, knowledge is made in universities and this must be shared. For the Executive Director, this protocol is an important contribution so that in uncertain times the digital transformation becomes a strategic bet for companies. He also hopes that the two institutions will have an extremely useful exchange of experiences, so that competition at the local and global levels continues to be minimized.
