Who are the best banks in Ghana based on their financial performance for the year ending 2020?
The following are conclusions drawn by analysts from Tesah Capital, one of Ghana’s top investment firms, after conducting an analysis of data from the Bank of Ghana, Financial statements of the banks, and Annual Reports for 2020 from all 23 banks in Ghana, except NIB Bank and OmniBSIC.
The bank performance evaluation rankings were based on the financial statements released by the banks for FY 2020. The rankings focused on 21 out of the 23 commercial banks in Ghana, as the financials of OMNIBSIC and National Investment Bank were unavailable at the time of the analysis.
The rankings emanated from an assessment of the creditworthiness and performance of the banks using the CAMEL framework ie; capital adequacy, assets size, management capability, earnings, and liquidity.
Zenith Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and EcoBank Ghana were the top 3 banks with strong performances in the year under review. On the contrary, First Bank of Nigeria, Universal Merchant Bank, and Prudential Bank were the least ranked banks based on the CAMEL components.
