After six Years of Operation-Guaranty Trust Bank Opens 7th Branch

Friday, March 21, 2008
In its never-ending quest to reach the length and breadth of The Gambia, Guaranty Trust Bank (Gambia) Limited has opened a new branch in Kanifing. The branch, situated at Jimpex along the Banjul/Serrekunda highway, reflects yet again the Bank’s uniqueness in its customer-driven and focused strategy of getting closer to the customers.

The branch, which bears the hallmarks of a modern architectural design and aesthetic sophistication suitable for ideal banking transactions, would no doubt redefine convenience in terms of proximity for the industrialists and business people operating within the Kanifing Industrial Area.
Six years on as a leading bank in The Gambia, Guaranty Trust Bank has no doubt reflected back with its valued customers on the successes registered over the years.

Since its inception in March 2002, the bank has grown to a seven-branch bank. Its magnificent head office along Kairaba Avenue, coupled with six other branches in Banjul, Serrekunda, Brikama, Senegambia, Bambo and now Kanifing, is a clear testimony of the bank’s success over a period of six years.
Having been rated as the third largest bank in The Gambia, Guaranty Trust bank has and continues to be a pacesetter in the already competitive banking industry in the country. In addition to that, GT Bank has opened two new Western Union outlets in Banjul and Sukuta where customers could send and receive money through Western Union.

The hallmarks of the bank’s success in achieving its corporate vision is the combination of the unflinching interest and commitment of a well trained and dedicated human capital, robust technology and above all the unreserved confidence and patronage by its loyal and esteemed customers.

Guaranty Trust Bank offers a wide range of innovative and tailor-made products and services that suit the banking needs of the Gambian populace. Among its value added products and services are GTSave, Smart Kids Save (a product designed to inculcate and nurture savings habit among children), GTB Bankers Acceptance, Internet Banking and Max Advance (a salary based credit facility).

The Bank has also installed two ATM machines at its Kairaba Avenue and Senegambia branches.  In 2007, the bank introduced three additional services to its wide array of services which were Slip-free Banking, GTBank Electronic Notification Service (GeNS) and GTBank swift mailer.
These new services are unique to GTBank as they are designed for customers to have adequate information of transactions on their accounts.
The Bank, in its efforts to complement the Government of the Gambia’s efforts to engender socio-economic development, continues to meet its corporate social responsibilities. Over the years, the bank has ploughed back a significant chunk of its profit to the Gambian populace to uplift their living standards.

In February 2008, the bank adopted a Family House at SOS Village in Bakoteh, a home for orphans and less privileged children and it continues to work towards many more good and noble causes.
