CEO Statement

Firstly, I want to give God all praise and glory for the success the Bank has been enjoying over the years.

I am delighted to introduce Access Bank (Gambia) Limited, which is a subsidiary of  Access Bank PLC, with its Head Office in Nigeria, and other subsidiaries in Ghana, Zambia, Rwanda, DR Congo, Sierra Leone and the UK, with representation in China, Lebanon, and India.

Access Bank (Gambia) Limited was set up in October 2006 and it has ever since becoming a household name in the financial industry in The Gambia. Highly supported by strong financial capacity and expertise at the disposal of the Group Office.  Access Bank, Gambia, has been able to render significant tailor-made financial solutions to the economic terrain of The Gambia, and the sub-region at large. 

The entire management and staff are highly motivated and keen to build on this trend in subsequent years. The success can be attributed to several reasons that define the exemplary and outstanding organizational culture of Access Bank (Gambia) Limited. First of these many reasons is the motivation and commitment of our staff and the constant drive of the management towards realizing the vision and core values of the Bank. Our staff continues to be the catalysts of the Bank, as they constitute the most precious resource for enabling the Bank to go beyond the ordinary, in setting standards for sustainable business practices and delivering innovative solutions for the markets and communities we serve.

The Bank is making strides in Digital Banking through the introduction of E-channels products such as USSD & Mobile Banking, ATM’s, POS and Sophisticated Internet Banking Software. The Bank continues to evolve by devising strategies that will enhance the marketability and constantly promote the development of our franchise, by focusing more on retail banking. This is in line with the Bank’s vision of being the world’s most respected African Bank.

Access Bank remains committed to complementing efforts of Government in nation-building. As a responsible corporate entity, the Bank recognizes its role in contributing to the long-term sustainable development of its environment. Corporate Social Responsibility represents a way in which we achieve a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives, while, simultaneously addressing shareholder’s expectations. Over the years the Bank has supported institutions like;

  • The Police
  • GADHOH
  • The Army
  • Tanka Tanka Psychiatric Hospital

We thank our esteemed customers for their continued loyalty and patronage. To our shareholders, we say, thank you for your trust and confidence in Access Bank, Gambia.
