The Governor of the Bank of Ghana, Dr. Ernest Addisson, has commended GCB Bank for its unwavering commitment to innovation, resilience, and continuous evolution within the dynamic banking industry.

Delivering a speech at the GCB Bank 70th Anniversary Thought Leadership Conference, the Dr Addisson observed that over the past four years, GCB Bank has demonstrated exceptional fortitude in the face of unprecedented challenges, particularly the economic crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

He noted that although the implementation of the Domestic Debt Exchange Programme (DDEP) caused some challenges in the financial sector, the bank's ability to stand the issues is a testament to the bank's proactive approach to addressing challenges.

"Undeterred by this setback, provisional unaudited returns reflect a significant improvement in GCB Bank’s performance.

"The bank is projected to post profits in 2023, which will help close the capital gap created by the DDEP," he noted.

He further emphasised the importance of sustaining these profits in the coming years, which will also play a crucial role in enhancing the solvency position of the bank and ensuring long-term financial stability.

The Governor underscored GCB Bank's resilience, noting its dedication to continued compliance with banking sector regulations.

GCB Bank was recently honored as the safest bank in Ghana by renowned credit rating agencies Moody’s, Fitch, and Standard & Poor’s. In addition, the bank was voted the most compliant Bank in Africa by the Association for Certified Compliance Professionals in Africa (ACCPA).

Dr. Addisson commended GCB Bank's exceptional value delivery to stakeholders, emphasising that the bank's commendable achievements have set the pace in the banking industry.

He highlighted that, given the right conditions, such as sound governance structures and ethical practices, any indigenous bank, even a government-owned one, can perform well, even in the face of strong competition from foreign counterparts.

On his part, the Managing Director of GCB, Kofi Adomakoh highlighted the bank's journey of successes and challenges, adding that the institution's resilience has played a crucial role in overcoming obstacles and consistently recovering.

Mr Adomakoh expressed the bank's unwavering commitment to demonstrating further resilience by actively supporting customers in their growth endeavors, aiding business expansions, and contributing to the development of the communities in which GCB operates.

The Managing Director articulated the pivotal role of partnerships and engagements, such as those initiated through discussions like the Strategic Vision Forum, in shaping the bank's strategies for the future.

He underscored the significance of these discussions in providing valuable economic literature for various stakeholders, offering insights into the evolving financial landscape and contributing to informed decision-making.

Mr Adomakoh further outlined GCB Bank's strategic focus areas, which include digital transformation, enhancing customer experience, robust risk management, substantial investments in human resources, and a dedicated commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles.

The Managing Director expressed confidence that these strategic pillars would spearhead the bank's growth in the coming years.
