Guaranty Trust Bank (Ghana) Limited, over the last eleven (11) years of operations in Ghana, has become a household name and trailblazer in the innovation of efficient electronic channels that enable its customers to carry out banking transactions from wherever they may be.
Barely a week ago, the Bank won five (5) awards at the 2017 Banker Africa–West Africa awards: namely the Most Innovative Bank, West Africa; Best Online Platform, Ghana; Best Commercial Bank, West Africa; Best Commercial Bank in Ghana and Best Corporate Bank, Ghana – all in recognition of its unique offering of tailor-made products and services to serve customers better.
In June this year, GTBank Ghana was for the fourth (4th) year running adjudged ‘Technology Advanced Bank of the Year’ at the Ghana Information Technology and Telecoms Awards; thereby cementing its undisputed lead in the use of technology to make banking easy and convenient for its customers and the general public.
It was also named the Digital Bank of the Year and Best Bank in Mobile Financial Service in recognition of the various platforms and channels deployed to enhance banking on the go.
These awards cemented an earlier international recognition of GTBank’s superiority in e-banking, when the U.K.-based Capital Finance International awarded it the Best Digital Banking – Ghana 2017 award in March this year.
