Ghana International Bank is a bank with a difference. We combine extensive experience in the London financial markets with deep connections across multiple African countries and industries.

We care about Africa. We understand your needs, and our banking solutions are designed to meet them. We are a key player in trade finance, corporate lending, capital markets and correspondent banking in Africa, while our focus on nurturing long-term relationships with clients has made us Africa’s bank of choice.

Our mission

We want to be the partner of choice for Africans and institutions doing business with Africa. We are a dynamic pan-African bank supporting a dynamic continent. Through our market knowledge and strong relationships, we work to foster trade, promote companies’ business growth, deliver cost-effective services to individuals and drive sustained economic development. By working together, we aim to create a brighter future for everyone: our customers, staff, shareholders and the communities we serve.

Our history

In 1959, two years after the country’s independence, Ghana Commercial Bank set up a branch in the City of London with a unique mandate: to finance international trade and serve as an intermediary for the flow of funds to and from Ghana.

Ghana International Bank (GHIB) was incorporated in the United Kingdom in 1998 to take on that mantle. Authorized and regulated by the Prudential Regulation Authority and Financial Conduct Authority, the bank is now owned by a consortium of major Ghanaian financial institutions, with the Central Bank of Ghana serving as majority shareholder.

Today, GHIB focuses on six key areas: treasury and global markets, trade finance, corporate and institutional banking, retail and small business banking, correspondent banking, and payment solutions. But our focus remains the same – to support the economies of Ghana and the wider African continent.
