Origin

Established as a joint venture between Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) and PVI Group Inc., Global Access was incorporated under the laws of Ghana in 1998 and commenced business in February 2000 as a Partner Agent of ADB in the Western Union Money Transfer business. The company has since grown and added other money transfer services to its remittance product line.

As a remittance service company at its inception, Global Access helped to shape the remittance service industry in Ghana for over Ten (10) years before becoming a fully-fledged deposit-taking financial institution (Savings and Loans Company) in 2010. Having played the critical pioneering role in the remittance services business and operated profitably for over 10 years, its Board and the Executive Management decided to convert the company into a savings and loans company following changing needs of the customers especially for “a one shop banking platform” that is capable of providing full suite of banking products and solutions.

After meeting the key licensing requirements, Global Access was issued with a savings and loans license in 2009 under the new Banking Act 2004 (Act 673) and started to operate as a fully-fledged savings and loans company on December 6, 2010.
