"We achieved these results in a difficult operating environment characterised by the strengthening of the US dollar against our operating currencies, high inflation, high interest rates and tight labour markets across Africa as the Russia-Ukraine conflict continued to take its toll. Despite these challenges, we continued to support our customers effectively, which paid off as our businesses grew their revenues and profits. These were driven by trade, cash management, FICC and payments, while we also achieved modest loan growth with support from higher interest rates. As a result, pre-tax profits increased by 13%, 26% and 59% in our Corporate and Investment Banking, Consumer Banking and Commercial Banking businesses respectively."

Ecobank Transnational Incorporated is the parent company of Ecobank Group which is present in more than 30 African countries including Nigeria, Ethiopia, Burkina Faso, Kenya, Togo, etc.
