the 365-day bill. According to the latest auction results from the Bank of Ghana, interest rates for the 91-day bill and the 182-day bill have increased to 29.96% and 32.1% respectively. Despite the high rates, the government has witnessed consistent oversubscriptions in its latest auctions. The 91-day bill saw a total subscription of GH¢2.02 billion, GH¢439.28 million was accepted from the 182-day bill and GH¢233.69 million was accepted from the 364-day bills.

🚩Standard Chartered Bank has reported a substantial boost in its financial performance for the third quarter of 2023. The bank, which had previously grappled with a net loss of GH¢93.7 million in the same quarter of the previous year, posted a net profit of GH¢298 million. This recovery can be attributed to the substantial growth in the bank’s operating income, which surged from GH¢701 million in Q3 2022 to GH¢1.2 billion in Q3 2023. Total assets grew from GH¢11.7 billion in Q3 2022 to GH¢13.6 billion in Q3 2023, reflecting a 16.23 percent increase year-on-year. The bank’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) at the close of Q3 2023 stood at 23.1%, marking a significant improvement from the 15.6% CAR recorded in Q3 2022.

🚩Agricultural Development Bank (ADB) reported a significant decline in net profit, with Q3 2023 figures showing GH¢2 million compared to the GH¢41.8 million net profit in the same period the previous year. This represents a GH¢39.8 million drop in net profit on a year-on-year basis. Despite showing growth in net interest income and operating income, standing at GH¢ 397 million and GH¢ 621 million, respectively, the bank struggled with a myriad of issues, ultimately impacting its profitability. ADB’s assets saw notable growth, surging from GH¢7.1 billion in Q3 2022 to GH¢9.3 billion in Q3 2023, indicating a substantial GH¢ 2.2 billion increase in asset value over the year. The bank’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) plummeted to a mere 1.3% at the close of Q3 2023, marking a substantial decline from the 10.4% CAR recorded in Q3 2022.
