Speaking at the award ceremony, Chris Matthee, Executive Officer: Retail Banking Services said that, through the loyal support of vehicle dealers, Bank Windhoek cemented its position as a major role player in the vehicle and asset finance industry in Namibia.

“The annual Bank Windhoek and Republikein Motor Show was this year once again a huge success. And the business we received from you, as dealers, at the Motor Show this year, increased substantially. Bank Windhoek’s Vehicle and Asset Financing division continued to be a significant contributor to the growth in our loans and aances to customers. It is particularly pleasing to note that the loan loss rate this year once again decreased. This simply means that Bank Windhoek is a responsible lender and that our clients honour their commitments to the Bank.”
