Is your bank safe? List of banks that have met BoG’s requirement

Sources have confirmed that the Bank of Ghana will release a list of all banks that have successfully met its GH₵400 million capital requirement as designated by the central bank earlier last year. Following the December 31, 2018 deadline, Graphic Online has formulated a list with predictions of the banks that have and have not met the requirement.

One of the banks that was unable to meet the requirement has a capital deficit in excess of GH₵800 million, the report reads.

 One bank will be downgraded to a saving and loans company for failure to recapitalise before the December 31, 2018 deadline, the report adds.

Furthermore, BoG will use provisions set out in Sections 103 to 137 of the Banks and Specialised Deposits Taking Institutions Act 2016 (Act 930), the report says.

 Joy Business is working to confirm the report.
