Kurt Koenigsfest: in memoriam


February 12, 2021 It is with deep sorrow that the Global Alliance for Banking on Values (GABV) learned of the passing of Kurt Koenigsfest, CEO of BancoSol (Bolivia) and Board member of the GABV, on 11 February.

Kurt Koenigsfest has been a leading light in the development of inclusive finance in Bolivia, the Latin American region and internationally.

BancoSol has been a member of the GABV since 2010 and Kurt Koenigsfest a member of the GABV Board since 2014. During that time, he brought his experience and skill to the growth and increasing influence of values-based banking, overseeing the development of a thriving Latin American Chapter of the GABV. Through his pioneering work in Bolivia, and his influence outside the country, he has made a powerful contribution to the lives and well-being of disadvantaged people around the globe. He will be hugely missed.

On behalf of everyone in the GABV community, we extend our condolences to Kurt Koenigsfest’s family, friends and colleagues at BancoSol.
