Message from the CEO


07 Nov, 2017

Dear Business Partner,

November is a bittersweet month. It signals that the end of the year is near and it is a perfect time to ramp up activities to end the year on a fantastic note. As always at UMB, we have been working hard to provide you with innovative developments to improve your banking experience.

As we near the end of the year, we continue to celebrate our 45th Anniversary. Hopefully, you have been able to view our 45th anniversary documercial. It airs on GTV Monday to Friday at 6pm; on TV3 Monday to Friday at 6:48pm; and on UTV Monday to Friday from 5:55pm to 6:30pm. We are very proud of our documercial as it provides you with an informative account of the storied history of UMB, our financial strength, our commitment to the growth of local businesses and our focus on innovation and modernity. If you are not able to view our documercial on TV, make sure to visit our Facebook page or YouTube channel to view it at your leisure.

Later this month, we will be implementing new software to expedite our credit processing service. From our very beginning, we have been a champion of local businesses and we understand what businesses need to succeed and grow. Quick access to reliable financing is important for the growth of businesses and our new software will allow us to significantly reduce our credit application processing time so that we can contribute to the success story of more businesses.

I am also excited to share that we will be introducing the UMB UnionPay Gold card and UMB UnionPay Business Gold card later this month. As an innovative bank, we proudly support the development of convenient, secure and reliable payment platforms that move us towards a cashless society. UnionPay is one of the top international payment platforms and we are happy to expand your payment options by introducing UnionPay to our card family.

As we look forward to the end of 2017, I wish to assure you that UMB is on course to meet the new Bank of Ghana capital requirements. We have been actively working with potential investors and I am confident that we will be announcing wonderful news in the very near future.

I wish you the very best for a wonderful November and we look forward to serving you online and in our branches.

Sincerely,
