Afrix Model: An Approach for Measuring and Managing Reputational Risk for African Banks

This research intends to identify corporate reputation drivers and ascertain how African banks brand preference and performance can derived from them using a designed conceptual framework. The methodological approach for the study encompasses a desk research reviewing the existing literature and a qualitative study.

The empirical analysis and discussion of the findings allows the researcher to identify six (06) dimensions and forty (40) attributes relevant to the measurement of corporate reputation in African banks.

A conceptual model has been proposed to measure and manage efficiently reputational risk.
