United Bank for Africa (Ghana) Limited introduced an innovative banking method where customers can access the services of the bank without visiting the banking premises.

The Bank launched an App, Leo, which serves as a chat box on WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger which allows customers to perform services of the bank like, Account Opening, Money Transfer, Deposits etc. on their smartphones at any place of convenience.

This initiative according to the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the bank, Mr Isong Udom, was introduced because the world has been evolving, and physical contact was becoming a thing of the past due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
