Ghana Central Bank Governor Supports Bank Mergers, Times Says

Ghana’s domestically owned banks should consider mergers or look for buyers to meet new capital-base requirements by 2012, central bank Governor Kwesi Amissah-Arthur said, the Business and Financial Times reported.

Ghana is increasing the capital-base minimum for banks to 60 million cedis ($41.6 million) from 25 million cedis, the Accra-based newspaper said.

Foreign-owned banks in Ghana, which include units of Barclays Plc and Standard Chartered Plc, are already in compliance with the rules, Business and Financial Times said.

Amissah-Arthur also encouraged the government to sell its holdings in banks to diversify ownership in the financial industry.
