One bank is expected to be downgraded to a savings and loans company for being unable to meet the minimum paid-up capital as of the December 31, 2018 deadline

BoG will announce that it has accepted a government-backed arrangement by private investors to raise up to GH₵2 billion through bonds to invest in six indigenous banks to enable them to meet the minimum capital.

The first tranche of the bond could be around GH₵800 million and will be used to recapitalise well-governed, solvent but undercapitalised banks.

The transaction is being executed by a special purpose vehicle, the Ghana Amalgamated Trust (GAT) Limited.
