ECOBANK is the sixth largest bank in the country. Not only that, it has consistently won the award for the best bank at the Ghana Banking Awards. It won it for the fourth time this year, for IT infrastructure, among other things. I am no-PR man for the bank, but it is true to say that it pioneered ATM services in the country, with the "VISA" brand a few years ago.
It has thirteen branches in the West African sub-region, including Cameroon. It's major shareholder is the West African sub-regional organisation the "Economic Community of West African States", whose website who can find here. Established in 1985, it is, in effect, a truly, indigenous West African bank that is going places.

Suffice to say that I am a proud customer of the bank:-)
