The Bank of Ghana has won the Central Banking’s FinTech Policy of the Year Award 2022. This follows the Bank’s remarkable development of a Supervisory Intelligence Platform, which aims to streamline the collection and analysis of granular data from regulated FinTechs.
The platform also enhances the Bank’s capabilities for evidence-based policy interventions in the dynamic digital financial service ecosystem.
Commenting on the award, the Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Ernest Addison, said: “On behalf of the Board, Management, and staff of the Bank of Ghana, I accept the FinTech and RegTech Global Awards for the FinTech Policy of the Year Award 2022 category, with honour and pride. The purpose of innovation is not to follow trends; but to create solutions that are unique, tailored, and adaptable to one’s ecosystem.
I wish to express the Bank’s gratitude to Central Banking for the recognition of this innovative policy tool, which was borne out of our quest to promote inclusive innovation in a safe and secure environment. Particularly, I also want to applaud the efforts of the Bank’s FinTech and Innovation Office for the development of this tool in-house.
I believe this award will spur us to develop additional innovative ways to further enhance regulation and supervision of Ghana’s thriving digital financial service ecosystem”.
