About Ghana International Bank

Ghana International Bank was founded in 1959 as Ghana Commercial Bank, two years after Ghana was granted independence from Britain. Setting up its first branch in Cheapside, London, the bank was established to finance international trade and acted as a means by which money could flow to and from Ghana.

The current incarnation of Ghana International Bank was founded in 1998. It took over Ghana Commercial Bank’s operations (GCB has an ownership stake in GHIB). Now more than 50 years old, the bank still operates out of its Cheapside headquarters.

As a London-based bank with roots in Africa, Ghana International Bank is expanding across the African continent. It is perfectly placed to work with companies looking to get established in Africa, with a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities of doing business there and correspondent links with several global financial institutions.
