Access Bank expands reach

MD ACCESSIn line with its inclusive banking strategy, Access Bank Ghana — the Bank of the Year, has unveiled two new branches on the Spintex Road and in Kasoa.

The move is to take banking services closer to its existing customers and make banking accessible to persons who fall outside the mainstream financial sector.

The addition of the two branches brings the Bank’s total network to 42 business locations across the country.

A statement issued by the bank in Accra yesterday said the newly opened branches would offer the Bank’s full range of business and retail banking products including flexible savings and current account options.

It said other services available to customers were bills payment, E-banking and card services as well as domestic and international money transfer through Western Union, Moneygram and Access Bank’s own cross border transfer.

Commenting on the branch expansion, the Managing Director of Access Bank Ghana, Mr. Dolapo Ogundimu, said “We are embarking on an intelligent expansion across the country. Three more branches in Ho, Accra New Town and Dansoman will be completed by the end of this year. Additional locations are also planned for next year.”

Access Bank recently launched its bouquet of inclusive banking products for children, students and pensioners, with unique features and benefits that set it apart from the offerings on the market.

According to Mr. Ogundimu, the new branches would make the newly launched products accessible to the Bank’s target which includes underserved market segments, small businesses, individuals and families.

“Our goal is to bring banking services right into the heart of the communities where customers and prospects live” he said.

Since launching its banking operations in Ghana in 2009, Access Bank has increased its presence to cater for its growing market shares, especially in retail banking, to give the unbanked and underserved segments of the market the access to its services.
