Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Limited (Stanchart), has opened its ‘smart branch’ – state-of-the-art digitized office, at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), with a pledge to give strong financial support to grow businesses.

The bank’s total asset base stood at GH¢4.9 trillion as of the end of March, last year, representing 5.7 per cent of the total assets of the nation’s banking industry.

Ms. Mansa Nettey, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), said it would continue to make its financial services more beneficial to the customer and the national economy.

This, she added, was critical to building a resilient financial and economic market.

The CEO spoke of the development of standardized digital platforms to achieve the bank’s corporate objectives of satisfying the rapidly changing client needs and to effectively engage them across digital channels.

The KNUST office brings to 25, the number of branches it had been operating nationwide.

Ms. Nettey underlined bank’s unswerving commitment to keep its corporate social responsibility, to make life better for the people.

It was in line with this that Stanchart had been collaborating with partners to undertake programmes to promote education development and expand access to quality healthcare.

Under its signature “Seeing is believing” programme, it had been providing funds to tackle avoidable blindness, and this, the CEO said, had so far benefitted about seven million people.

Many with severe eye conditions had undergone free surgery to correct them. Added to this was the supply of spectacles.

Mr. Ishmael Yamson, the Board Chairman, urged Ghanaians to embrace the changing trends in banking.

The bank was working to combine traditional banking with digital channels.
