Fidelity Bank exchanges knowledge with Columbia Business School delegation

MANAGING Director of Fidelity Bank says the bank’s strategic expansion across the continent as well as its focus on digital banking is meant to ensure broader financial accessibility. 


“Fidelity Bank has engaged in a strategic expansion, which includes the bank’s international office in Malaysia and its focus on digital banking for broader financial accessibility,” he said.

Mr Opuni said this when the bank received a delegation of 35 students and faculty from Columbia Business School, a world-renowned institution for business education, at its head office in Accra.

The visit served as a platform for knowledge exchange and exploration of potential collaborations in driving financial inclusion, fostering innovation and implementing effective growth strategies within the African market, specifically focusing on Ghana.

Mr Opuni recounted the bank's transformation from a discount house in 1998 to a leading universal bank today. 

He used the opportunity to inspire the students by urging them to embrace calculated risks.

Head of Partnerships, Sustainability and CSR, Nana Yaa Afriyie Ofori-Koree, also outlined Fidelity Bank's comprehensive approach to sustainable development. 

She added that “the bank has a three-pillar strategy that focuses on ESG. These are Sustainable Finance, Sustainable Operations and CSR. A good example is the Fidelity Young Entrepreneur programme and the Orange Impact initiative, which supports education through financial and non-financial support.”

Acting Director of Retail Segments, Thomas Ishmael Adjei, showcased Fidelity Bank's innovative approach to financial inclusion. 

He said: “The success of our product, the Smart Account, which simplifies account opening and the extensive agency network exceeding 9,000 agents, has made financial services readily accessible to Ghanaians in remote areas.”

Professor Stephan Meier, Chair of the Management Division, and James P. Gorman, Professor of Business at Columbia Business School, expressed appreciation for Fidelity Bank's ongoing commitment to providing students with first-hand knowledge of the Ghanaian financial sector.
