He said the bank was refocusing its strategy on retail banking to cater for all strands of businesses.

“The branch is a one stop facility to address all banking needs including payment for utility bills, receipt of remittances from abroad among others,” he said.

Mr. Antwi-Asimeng expressed the hope that customers would take advantage of the superior customer service, quality banking products and unique private banking experience on offer to do business with the bank.
