According to the bank, in a pre-award notification of shortlisting  it for the award,  the organisers had said: “It would not be an exaggeration to say that 2022 has been the year of TAJ when the bank has been setting one record after the other. Having won the Islamic Bank of the Year Award at the 2021 edition of the BAFI Awards, this back-to-back shortlisting would make it a first if TAJBank wins again this year.”

The BAFI Awards’organisers attributed the nomination of TAJ Bank for the 2022 award to the bank’s financial performance; credit rating upgrade to “Bbb” by Augusto & Co reflecting “the Bank’s good liquidity profile, satisfactory capitalization, improving profitability and a growing franchise in the Islamic banking space”, Issue of National Banking License by the Central Bank of Nigeria; and successful issuance of its N100 billion Series 1 Sukuk programme, amongst others.
