The First Citizens Group of Companies continues to be awarded for its commitment to service excellence. First Citizens Investment Services (St. Lucia) Ltd has received the coveted Award For Service Excellence in the 2013 St. Lucia Business Awards. The awards ceremony was organised by the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture which celebrates achievements, innovation and strategies of St Lucia’s private sector.
The St. Lucia-based investment company is the sister firm of First Citizens Investment Services (Barbados) Ltd., and of First Citizens Bank, which opened its doors in Barbados in 2012. While the award specifically relates to the brand’s St. Lucia operations, the win is good news for the brand, which is considered to be one of the region’s sturdiest indigenous financial institutions. The award is also good news for the Barbadian market, as the win reinforces that First Citizens’ Barbados operations are part of a strong, reliable financial institution.
The First Citizens brand operates in Barbados, Costa Rica, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and Trinidad & Tobago, and has won a number of accolades across the Caribbean. In 2010, First Citizens Investment Services (Barbados) Ltd, was a finalist in the Barbados Best Employers Awards. In Trinidad and Tobago, First Citizens Bank was designated as “Bank of the Year 2012” by The Banker Magazine. Now, First Citizens Investment Services (St. Lucia) has received the coveted Award For Service Excellence in the 2013 St. Lucia Business Awards.
