Message from the CEO

Dear Business Partners,

A pleasant welcome to the month of August and as always I have some very good news to share with you.

UMB has once again been recognized for its stellar performance in the Ghanaian banking industry. At the 13th Ashanti Financial Services Excellence Awards, UMB was adjudged the best bank in Construction Finance. We are very proud of this achievement and we dedicate this to you, our supportive partners.

Entrepreneurship is a subject that is very dear to my heart and I cherish the opportunity to engage with and to help groom young entrepreneurs. On July 29, 2016, I had the privilege of speaking to the members of the African Entrepreneurship Hub, a non-profit organization focused on encouraging entrepreneurship among the youth of Ghana. At this meeting, I outlined several tips that our young business leaders can use to secure investor support and capital for their businesses. Let me also add that UMB is always eager to speak to promising startups and entrepreneurs to ascertain ways of assisting them to take their businesses to the next level.

I am also elated to announce that the UMB Customer Contact Centre has extended its working hours. The centre will now be available from 6am to 9pm, Monday to Friday to address all of your concerns. Kindly call the UMB Customer Contact Centre on our toll-free lines: MTN 0800-100880, Vodafone and Airtel 0800-10088 and all other lines 0302 633 988.

Finally we will be opening our newest ultra-modern branch at Sakaman on the 8th August, 2016. Our new Sakaman branch is indeed an aesthetically appealing edifice staffed with friendly and knowledgeable banking professionals who are ready to exceed your expectations. The entire UMB family is thrilled to bring our outstanding products and services to the residents of Sakaman and its environs and we look forward to serving you in our new branch.

Yours sincerely
