The change is expected to begin on February 2020.

The bank said the change has become necessary because it has recognised that its customers’ needs are changing, and are investing in digital platforms to offer more convenience.

Barclays Bank Ghana captured this in a press statement it issued.

The bank said, “As the bank prepares to change, Customers of Absa Bank Ghana can expect a more forward-looking, digitally-led bank.”

“Customers can also look out for the bank’s refreshed internet banking and mobile app facilities, which carry improved user interfaces e.g fingerprint and facial recognition access,” it said, adding that, “The bank has recently upgraded its infrastructure, which has resulted in a more stable and scalable environment for their applications, as well as increased local systems knowledge.”
