Recapitalization of Banks – See from this list if your bank has met the requirements


The bank of Ghana requires that all banks meet a new minimum capital of GHC400 Million in order to keep their license. This they say is to protect depositors and shareholders funds and to ensure stability in the banking sector.

Several banks have aleeady fallen off the cliff in the past two years due to financial misconduct and what some say dereliction of duty in the oversight responsibility of the mother Bank. This has led the bank of Ghana to sit up and sanitize the banking sector. Below we provide a list of banks that have successfully recapitalized and those who are yet to meet the demands of Bank of Ghana.
