Message from the CEO

September 5, 2017

Dear Business Partner,

Welcome to the month of September. September signals back to school with a new school year for our student customers. As you prepare to successfully conquer another school year, remember to sign up for the UMB Aspire account and don’t forget that you can pay for your school fees at UMB.

Last month, I joined President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and other dignitaries to launch the One District, One Factory initiative with the first factory, a pineapple processing factory, in the Ekumfi District of the Central Region. It was an honour to be present on this important occasion to reaffirm our commitment to the One District, One Factory initiative. As previously communicated, our  UMB PPP Incubator Centre will help UMB to fulfill our partnership obligations with the government under the One District, One Factory initiative and other Public Private Partnership arrangements. Through our UMB PPP Incubator Centre we will deliver top-notch technical and prudent financial support to entrepreneurs with transformational projects that meet the One District, One Factory initiative guidelines and other Public Private Partnerships. Later this month, I will be announcing a number of key projects that UMB will be involved with under the One District, One Factory initiative.

Our 45th Anniversary celebrations continue this month with our Anniversary Health Walk and Thanksgiving Service. This year we are walking to support UMB Foundation in fulfilling its projects in health, education and those projects that celebrate and promote Ghanaian Heritage and Culture. For every UMB staff member that completes our 10km walk, UMB will donate Ghc100 to UMB Foundation. I invite you to join us to walk for your health and to walk for a good cause.

Our 45th celebrations would not be complete without giving thanks to the Lord Almighty. UMB has so much to be thankful for and we give all praise to the Lord Almighty for blessing us with so much. I look forward to worshipping with my fellow colleagues and our dear customers as we sing, worship and fellowship in the goodness and infinite wisdom of the Lord Almighty.

We are still counting down to the launch of our innovative new product. Stay tuned for the official announcement, but I promise you that this new product will transform your UMB banking experience.

I wish you all the best for a wonderful September and we look forward to serving you in our banking halls and across our digital banking networks.
