Our meeting with Ebenezer Essoka confirmed why Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Limited deserves a premium rating. In fact, Ebenezer Essoka probably personally represents some 10% of that premium. A true banker with a clear focus and the ability to walk the talk as well as talk the talk.
Standard Chartered Bank Ghana Limited was the only bank we met on our visit to Accra that was no planing on a massive branch expansion. Essoka explained in a clear and logical way why the bank would not participate in the drive for funding at the expense of cost income ratio.
