Access Bank Ghana has been named the Best Bank in Ghana for 2024 by Global Finance magazine awards.

This recognition reflects the bank’s strong financial performance, innovative digital solutions, and commitment to customer service. Access Bank has been particularly noted for its ability to navigate Ghana’s challenging economic environment while maintaining robust profitability and offering a range of digital banking services.

The bank recorded an impressive net profit surge in 2023 by 47.1% in the third quarter to $34.4 million, from $23.3 million in the same period of 2022. The award further reflects Access Bank’s commitment to meeting the evolving needs of its customers and providing tailor-made products and services.

Managing Director of Access Bank (Ghana) PLC, Olumide Olatunji said “despite a challenging financial environment, we showed resilience and leadership. The remarkable profits we recorded could not have been achieved without the trust reposed in us and partnership from all our customers and relevant stakeholders”.

“This award affirms the Bank’s commitment to the needs of customers and the excellent service delivery it offers, evident in the bespoke banking products, accelerating access to finance, supporting women and women-led initiatives, partnerships for the growth of SMEs, education, and the Bank’s commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, among many other impactful initiatives,” Mr. Olatunji added.

He further assured the bank’s customers saying, “for you, we will keep doing more”.

The ‘Best Bank’ award is conferred on firms that have proven to be leading providers of exceptional banking services, recorded growth in assets, geographical reach, strategic partnerships and have also demonstrated outstanding contribution in the areas of sustainability and other initiatives within the banking sector.
