The Bank of Ghana (BoG) will, this week, announce the list of banks that have successfully raised their minimum capitals to GH₵400 million in compliance with its earlier directive, which elapsed on December 31, 2018.

Graphic Online says based on reliable information gathered, it foresees BoG making key decisions on two of the banks, using provisions set out in Sections 103 to 137 of the Banks and Specialised Deposits Taking Institutions Act 2016 (Act 930).

Both banks are unable to recapitalise, with one having a capital deficit in excess of GH₵800 million.

One bank is expected to be downgraded to a savings and loans company for being unable to meet the minimum paid-up capital as of the December 31, 2018 deadline

BoG will announce that it has accepted a government-backed arrangement by private investors to raise up to GH₵2 billion through bonds to invest in six indigenous banks to enable them to meet the minimum capital.
