About Ghana International Bank
The first commercial bank in Ghana was established in 1959, just two short years after the country had achieved independence from British rule. Their headquarters were established in London, allowing them to become an international banking facility. In 1998 the Ghana International Bank was formed with a purchase of controlling interest in the original commercial bank. This new bank is now considered to be the largest bank on the African continent that is wholly owned by an indigenous company.
More than this though the GHIB has become as much a personal bank as it is a commercial bank; there are currently thousands of people in many countries across Africa and around the world using this bank as their primary banking facility. For those who conduct business across the borders in Africa, the ability to find a nearby branch of this Ghana bank is key to being able to conduct business smoothly.
