The Ghana Association of Bankers (GAB) is the country's leading mouthpiece for the
universal banking sector, currently representing the interests of 34 member banks.
Membership brings together all the universal banks as the number in the sector increases.
At its inception on 29th May 1980, there were seven universal banks in Ghana against the
current figure of 34. GAB supports and promotes policies and initiatives that balance
both the interest of banks, and the wider public benefit. In consonance with similar
global bodies, GAB's work is underpinned by three core priorities:
Helping customers - both households and businesses Promoting growth,
including supporting Ghana as the financial gateway to West Africa To carry out research,

especially in the areas of credits by pursuing to fruition the establishment of
Credit reference bureau and also the general upgrade of bank personnel through training programmes.
To participate and contribute meaningfully to the programmes and activities of
the West African Bankers' Association and the proposed West African Monetary Agency.
