Working with the World Economic Forum

The WEF is an independent international organisation committed to improving the state of the world by engaging business, political, academic and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.

Absa is a Strategic Partner Associate of the WEF and participates in a range of WEF-related initiatives, including the annual and regional meetings. Various senior officials of Absa have been nominated to serve as experts on various WEF committees and working groups.

The WEF meetings provide an important platform to voice our commitment to play an active role in growing, stabilising and advancing financial systems in Africa. 

As we look to build on Absa’s pedigree as a brand with substantial equity, being a member of the WEF’s global network, offers Absa an opportunity to listen to the concerns and suggestions of global leaders, to draw lessons, and to act.
