Ghana's GCB Bank to convert development finance unit into an investment bank

Ghana-based GCB Bank Ltd. is looking to convert its development finance unit into an investment bank which will be called GCB Securities, Bloomberg News reported May 23, citing Managing Director Anselm Sowah.

The bank has already recruited staff for the investment banking unit, Sowah said.
