Bank of Ghana releases list of licensed banks in Ghana

The Bank of Ghana has released a list of banks that are duly licensed and of good standing in the country.

The Central Bank is the institution mandated to supervise and regulate the operations of all financial institutions in the country.

It is hoped that realising the list of licensed banks will help restore customers’ confidence in the banking sector.

Two months ago, the Central Bank dissolved five “insolvent” indigenous banks to form the Consolidated Bank of Ghana Limited.

These were the Royal Bank, Sovereign Bank, The Construction Bank, uniBank and Beige Bank.

The BoG explained that the five banks were merged in order to “ensure that the banking sector maintains a strong indigenous presence”.
