Freedom and banking: The connection

As Ghana commemorates its 67th Independence Day, we consider it a great opportunity to reflect on the profound connection between freedom and banking.


The journey towards independence marked a significant milestone in Ghana's history, symbolising liberation from colonial rule and the dawn of a new era of freedom and authority.

In parallel, the evolution of banking in Ghana has played an essential role in empowering individuals, businesses and communities to achieve financial freedom and prosperity, to which FBNBank has contributed immensely.

Banking has become more accessible, secure, and convenient today because technology has revolutionalised products and services.

The advent of technology has transformed the banking landscape in Ghana, making financial services more accessible, efficient and inclusive.

FBNBank Ghana has been at the forefront of leveraging technology to enhance customer experiences and drive financial inclusion. 

Digital platforms

Through digital banking platforms, customers can now access a wide range of banking services anytime, anywhere, using their smartphones or computers.

 Mobile banking applications, online banking portals and ATM networks have become essential tools for conducting transactions, transferring funds, paying bills, and managing accounts with ease.

With the rise of digital banking, ensuring the security of customer data and transactions has become paramount.

FBNBank Ghana has implemented robust security measures and protocols against cyber threats to protect customer data and transaction information. 

The bank’s modern operating software, Finacle 11.x, has a contemporary interface designed to provide customers with a seamless banking experience across all channels, including online banking and branch services.

 It incorporates robust security protocols and encryption mechanisms to safeguard against cyber threats and unauthorised access.

By prioritising security, FBNBank Ghana instills confidence and trust in its customers, reinforcing the notion of financial freedom and peace of mind.

Suite of products

One of the features of modern banking is the diverse range of service products and service offering tailored to meet the evolving needs of customers.

FBNBank Ghana offers a comprehensive suite of banking products and solutions designed to address various financial requirements and goals. 

From savings and investment accounts to loans, mortgages, and insurance products, the bank provides customers with the resources they need to achieve their financial aspirations.

Moreover, the Bank's personalised advisory services and financial planning tools empower customers to make informed decisions and enhance their financial outcomes.

Internet banking has emerged as a game-changer in the banking industry, offering customers unparalleled convenience and flexibility in managing their finances.

 FBNBank Ghana's corporate online banking platform is designed to be user-friendly and secure, providing customers with a seamless banking experience online.

 Through the platform, customers can access a wide range of banking services, including account management, fund transfers, bill payments and statement enquiries, from the comfort of their homes, offices or anywhere they might be.


With features such as biometric authentication, transaction alerts and secure messaging, internet banking has become a key tool for modern bank customers, and FBNBank is well placed to stay ahead of the pack by leveraging best practice from its parent bank, the FirstBank of Nigeria.

The bank is committed to this as confirmed by Victor Yaw Asante, the Managing Director.
