The Universal Merchant Bank (UMB) has held a colloquium on Trade and Treasury for clients in the export and import business.
The colloquium, the first in 2019, aims at discussing relevant topics that would enrich export business operations and investment prospects for customers and prospective clients of the bank.
Mr Benjamin Amenumey, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of UMB, in an address, indicated that UMB is in pole position to further intensify financial and advisory support to sustainable small and medium scale businesses.
He acknowledged the impact of the outcomes of the United States–China trade war and Brexit but expressed optimism and the Bank’s commitment to fully support businesses whatever the consequence may be.
“These uncertainties are problematic but as a Bank, we are well positioned to foresee and device strategies to curtail its effects on your business operations. Ultimately, we can continue to build on our relationship with you beyond the success of our businesses to affect the larger society positively,” he said.
“UMB is absolutely committed to the success and growth of your businesses and you have our collective commitment on this,” Amenumey added.
The key presentations at the event were delivered by Mr Kevin Adarkwah, UMB’s Director of Treasury and Mrs Rejoice King, the Head of Trade at the Bank.
The presentations focused on the huge opportunities offered by the Bank’s Trade and Treasury bouquets of products and services and how the participants could tap into it to simplify, scale and sustainably grow their various businesses in the export and import sector.
At the end of the colloquium, participants expressed their gratitude to UMB for a significant and useful session.
