Message from the CEO


06 Sep, 2016

Dear Business Partners,

The month of September heralds the beginning of the school year for most students in the country. For those entering tertiary institutions, it is the first step towards preparing for the responsibilities of the future. To effectively prepare for the future, students have to learn the fundamentals of saving, fund management and be open minded in starting to invest in a project. Our Aspire Account, an account exclusively created for tertiary students, is designed to assist tertiary students to do exactly that. I want to encourage all our stakeholders to visit any UMB branch to find out more about this unique product.

At this time of the year, the payment of school fees is an important activity for both parents and students and your bank of choice, UMB, has partnered with key stakeholders such as Interpay, MTN Mobile Money and Airtel Money to make the payment of fees very easy and stress free for you. Students of KNUST, University of Ghana, Central University, Ghana International School and Labone SHS, to name a few, can visit any of our 29 branches nationwide to pay their school fees.

Our annual mid-year leadership retreat came off last month in Aburi in the Eastern Region. At this meeting, we reviewed how we have managed our relationship with you during the first half of the year and we outlined key parameters for exceeding your expectations going forward.

I am also very happy to announce to the students, lecturers and members of the University of Ghana community that our University of Ghana branch will open later this month. This ultra-modern branch will bring our rich portfolio of products and services to the University of Ghana community and its environs.

I look forward to welcoming you into our new branch and I wish you all the best for the month.

Yours sincerely,
