Message from the CEO

06 May, 2016

Dear Business Partners,

The month of April was a very busy one for us at UMB. We launched the UMB Salary Overdraft facility which provides the convenience that salaried workers need as it enables them to withdraw up to 50% of their salaries in advance of scheduled payment date. The only qualifying criteria to benefit from this facility is to start receiving your salary through a UMB account and you instantly qualify for the salary overdraft.

Also, in line with our focus on building strategic partnerships, we sponsored two important events over the past month. First, we were the platinum sponsor at the SME Financing Fair in Accra which brought together stakeholders in the sector to brainstorm on solutions to the challenges facing SMEs in Ghana. Secondly, we were also the Innovation Partner of TEDxAccra 2016 and I was honoured to speak on the topic,Enhancing Innovation in Ghanaian Youth – Limiting our excuses”.

As we look forward to May, we have even more exciting developments in the works. In response to growth in footfall in our branches, we have commenced the expansion of some of our branches to enable us to serve you better. We will complete the expansion of our Bantama and Abossey Okai branches this month and works on other branches needing similar facelift will follow suit.

We are also very honoured to be receiving the award for the Best Performing Bank – MTN Mobile Money Month 2015. This exciting news is further testament to our resolve to provide you, our valued partners, with access to exceptional services and availability of our alternative channels platforms. Also, to give you even more options in our branches, we will be adding Airtel Money to our services very soon.

Finally our Private Banking unit will be holding its second seminar of the year for our Prominence Club on the topic, “In Search Of The Right Talent”. This will be an informative and insightful session and I hope our Prominence Club members will participate fully.

We are always eager to hear from you 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. You can also contact us, on our social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
