In 2023, the banking sector experienced a robust recovery, posting a profit, according to the Bank of Ghana.

The banking industry has made a remarkable recovery, according to the Bank of Ghana’s latest report. In 2023, the industry recorded a profit after experiencing losses in 2022. This positive trend can be attributed to an increase in net interest income and fees and commissions. The industry’s balance sheet also showed strength, with a significant rise in assets funded by deposits.

Despite some challenges, such as an increase in non-performing loans due to repayment difficulties by borrowers, the sector remains stable. This is supported by the ongoing recapitalization process by shareholders and the Ghana Financial Stability Fund.

The Central Bank also reported that key financial indicators, such as the Capital Adequacy Ratio, liquidity, and profitability, were all higher in December 2023 compared to the previous year. However, the Non-Performing Loan ratio did increase, reflecting the impact of macroeconomic challenges faced in 2022.

The latest stress tests conducted by the Bank of Ghana indicate that the sector remains stable, thanks to the efforts of shareholders and the support of the Ghana Financial Stability Fund.
