PRUDENTIAL Bank has opened a new branch at Atonsu in Kumasi bringing the bank’s branches in the country to 27.
Management’s decision to open the branch was part of its efforts to send banking to the doorsteps of the people across the country.
At the inauguration ceremony last Tuesday, the Managing Director of the bank, Mr Stephen Sekyere-Abankwa, said the bank intended to open three branches additional in the country before the close of the year.
He urged the people to patronise the bank because of the immense benefits associated with doing business with it.
The Deputy Managing Director of the bank, Mr Joseph Okine Afranie, enumerated the bank’s tremendous services to the business community and said this had been recognised through various awards over the past years.
“Already a good number of businesses are our clients and we entreat more to come in,” he said.
Mr Sekyere-Abankwa said Prudential Bank had the lowest loan interest rate and explained that this was due to their avowed aim to support business development.
He said high interest rates could have dire consequences on business development. It was, therefore, important that people looked for banks with lower rates.
