Type of Financial Institution

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.
