Ranked among Nigeria’s top five banks in terms of assets, loans, deposits, and branch network, Access Bank plans to leverage its extensive experience and resources to benefit the Caribbean market. While specific details about the launch date and location of the new branch were not disclosed, Imoukhuede assured stakeholders that the bank’s entry would significantly enhance digital infrastructure and streamline banking processes in the region.

Imoukhuede emphasized the importance of adapting to local market needs, stating, “When Access Bank goes into markets, we become just like everyone else in that market. If we go to Ghana, we become Ghanaians; if we go to Barbados, we become Barbadians.” This commitment underscores Access Bank’s strategy to integrate seamlessly into Caribbean communities, understanding and meeting the unique financial requirements of its diverse customer base.
