Message from the CEO


06 Jun, 2016

Dear Business Partners,

A warm welcome to the month of June.

Let me first express my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of the victims of the June 3rd, 2015 floods. The entire UMB family sympathizes with you as you go through the painful period of remembering your loved ones.

Before I highlight some of our upcoming projects, let me quickly recap one important initiative that we executed in the month of May. On 23rd May, 2016, we had the privilege of organizing a business seminar for vendors of the Osu Night Market. We discussed pertinent business growth enablers that will help them to manage their resources in a more efficient manner.

In the month of June, we have two exciting projects in the pipeline. The recent hike in utility tariffs has made the case for alternative sources of energy even stronger and since we are a bank that aims to enrich the lives of our customers, we are partnering with the Energy Commission to provide soft loans to individuals who want to purchase and install solar panels. This initiative is very important as it will help to reduce the demand on our current sources of electricity in Ghana. I hope that you will all take advantage of this program when it is launched.

We will also be launching the GhiPPS Instant Pay (GIP) service which will enable our customers to receive money instantly into their accounts from any bank in Ghana. This product is a tangible expression of the speed with which we serve our customers.

As always, your feedback is very valuable so please get in touch with us on any of our toll-free lines: MTN 0800-100880, Vodafone and Airtel 0800-10088 and all other lines 0302 633 988.
