Chief Executive Officer of defunct UT Financial Institution, Prince Kofi Amoabeng has explained that the success of UT bank can be attributed to his divorce from his wife.

According to a report filed by JoyNews, Kofi Amoabeng revealed that his breakthrough came after he separated from his wife.
He explained that the divorce ‘luckily’ gave him the luxury of time to focus more on his business, which eventually led to its success in building his business empire.

He added that since he did not have the burden of the family, he became devoted.
“...because I didn’t have the family burden, I could even devote more of every time I had to build the company... all these things ‘luckily’, and I say luckily in inverted commas, my wife took them away,” Amoabeng explained.
He also disclosed that his business engagements took him away from his family a lot, creating a disconnect between himself and his children.
Ofori-Atta borrowed from UT Bank when it was still operational
