BANK OF AFRICA is a subsidiary of O CAPITAL GROUP, a private sector Moroccan group, resulting from a merger between FinanceCom and Mezian Benjelloun Holdings. O CAPITAL GROUP’s corporate name, which derives from the first name initial of its founder as well as the ‘Enso’ Asian calligraphy character, embodies its global outlook and solidity whilst suggesting a sense of movement and creativity, hallmarks of its corporate identity.
BANK OF AFRICA Group’s strong commitment to environmental issues and to social and societal responsibility began more than 25 years ago with its BMCE Bank Foundation. Today, BMCE Bank Foundation continues to innovate and implement educational, environmental and community development programmes, while providing significant support to African start-ups.
With events in 2020 dominated by the COVID-19 pandemic, economies around the world saw a sharp slowdown. A number of regions, including Africa, proved relatively resilient. The challenging operating environment also underlined the solidity of Morocco’s financial system and that of its institutions which, supported by the country’s banking authority, Bank Al-Maghrib, were successfully met. Furthermore, the Bank’s business lines have undergone a transformation due to the development of digital banking. The various innovations made have proved a real asset in managing the business in a context of reduced mobility due to the pandemic. In what was an unprecedented year, BANK OF AFRICA’s solid fundamentals and appropriate strategic choices in terms of geographic diversification were underlined, so too, its astuteness in the technological choices made previously.
