Message from the CEO


07 Nov, 2016

Dear Business Partners,

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the month of November. As we begin to draw the curtains on what has been a remarkable 2016, I want to once again express my deepest gratitude to you, our cherished partner, for your unflinching support and patronage throughout the year. 

It is often said that the perceptions and potential of young people in a country is a reflection of that country’s future. Corporate entities play a critical role in developing the potential of our future leaders and at UMB we take this role very seriously. In the past month we renewed our commitment to this important category of Ghanaians with the inauguration of our University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) branch and the sponsorship of the Ghana Tertiary Awards.

Our UPSA branch, which is located a few metres after the main UPSA entrance, features two banking halls and a 24 Hour ATM. At the launch of the branch, we were honoured to have the Chancellor of UPSA, His Royal Majesty Drolor Bosso Adamtey I as our special guest of honour.

The Ghana Tertiary Awards is a platform for recognizing outstanding tertiary students who are already impacting their institutions and their communities. Our decision to sponsor this event is based on our firm belief that recognizing exceptional students not only inspires students to do more, but it also encourages others to emulate them.

We have always developed products and services to enrich the lives and businesses of our customers. Two important ways we do this is by focusing on convenience and providing a wide portfolio of services so that you can do a lot more in our branches. In this direction, we have partnered with SSNIT and Africa World Airlines (AWA) so that you can pay your SSNIT Contributions and purchase your AWA tickets at all of our thirty one (31) branches and our UMB Centre for Businesses in Ashtown, Kumasi.

I wish you the very best for the month and if you have any enquiries, kindly call our toll free lines: MTN 0800-100880, Vodafone and Airtel 0800-10088 and all other lines 0302 633 988.

Yours sincerely
