Jan 20, 2009, 5:29 AM

Guaranty Trust Bank has continued to expand its unique quality banking services, as it opens a new branch in Brusubi. This giant leap in the bank's expansion program is part of effort to extend the bank's strong brand of quality banking services to all nooks and corners of The Gambia, especially areas ignored by the prevailing banking structure. The branch which is situated in Burusbi along the Brufut Highway would bring banking services closer to businesses as well as Residents of Brusubi, Bijilo, Brufut and other surrounding settlements.

The new branch's architectural design reflects GTBank's unique policy of constructing a standard building ideal for conducive and convenient banking as opposed to the practice of converting other structures for banking purpose. "We are a bank with an international brand and as such we construct our branches with spacious parking areas and spacious banking halls to avoid inconvenience to customers in making deposit or withdrawals" says Mr. Lekan Sanusi, CEO and Managing Director of GTBank. "GTBank is unique in all facets of banking including its products and services such as statement by email, GTBank Electronic Notification System, GTBank Swiftmailer and GTBank Cashplus Card which help our customers to have adequate and immediate information about their accounts", he continues.

In addition, the bank's wide portfolio of other products and services include GT Orange savings Account (No minimum opening balance, no operating balance), Smart Kids Save, (a product designed to nurture the savings habit among children), GTB Bankers Acceptance, Internet Banking and Max Advance (a salary based credit facility).The bank has also installed four A TM machines at its Kairaba Avenue Head Office, Senegambia branch, Serekunda branch and Africell Building along Kairaba Avenue. As the bank continues to set benchmark initiatives, GTBank has also introduced Point of Sales Terminal (POS) available at Harry's Supermarket, KairabaShopping Center, Butchers Restaurant, Sultan Sweets Restaurants, Stop Step Pharmacy & Stores and Timbooktoo Bookstores. With GTBank Cashplus Card, our customers would be able to have access to cash 24 hours and do their daily shopping through our A TM machines and POS.

Within less than seven years of operations in the Gambia, GTBank has registered unprecedented growth. It is now operating from nine locations with its head office along Kairaba Avenue, and eight other branches located in Banjul, Serekunda, Senegambia, Brikama, Bamboo, Kanifing, Latrikunda Sabiji and Brusubi. According to Mr. Pa Alieu Ndow, Assistant General Manager overseeing the expansion program, GTBank will open two more branches in Farafenni and Bundung in early February 2009 and another two branches in Old Jeshwang and Basse in June 2009.
