Golden Link Savings & Loans, a subsidiary of the GLICO Group, has been launched at its head office at Tesano in Accra.
Managing Director of Golden Link, Dr Emmanuel Owusu, pointed out that his outfit was creating a wide network that would be functional in all commercial centers of Ghana.
Leveraging on technology to ensure that our products are available to all our customers at their doorsteps and in the comfort of their homes remains one of my priorities, he mentioned.
“Such flexibility would mean transactions can be conducted or initiated without the customer’s physical presence at any of our branches and outlets.”
Touching on what differentiates Golden Link from other savings and loans companies, he said, “Our interest rates charges are lower, we have extended hours that allows convenience. We plan to raise GHC120 million, which is the minimum capital requirement for the Central Bank, and if we are to achieve that soon, we should be able to operate as a bank within a year.”
Yaw Osafo-Maafo, Senior Minister, who was the special guest, remarked: “As a government, we will facilitate the growing of private sector businesses by creating a conducive environment free from intimidation and harassment.”
Executive Chairman of GLICO Group, Kwame Acheampong-Kyei, indicated that “let us be guided by our vision and strategic plans to make Golden Savings and Loans a dominant force in the savings and loans sector, while we expand and deepen the Foundation to finally transform into a universal bank in the next couple of years.”
Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, chaired the event.
