Bank of the Year, Fidelity Bank, has launched its 10th anniversary celebrations to commemorate milestones since its inception as a fully-fledged Ghanaian bank in 2006. As part of the anniversary, the Bank has changed its tagline from “the new standard” to “Believe With Us” introducing a refreshed and better Fidelity to customers and all stakeholders.

Speaking at the launch, Managing Director and co-founder of Fidelity Bank, Mr. Jim Baiden, expressed excitement describing Fidelity Bank’s achievement in the last 10 years as phenomenal.  “For an indigenous Bank to be ranked as the 4th largest among 28 banks in an industry where international competition exists is indeed a remarkable achievement worth celebrating”.  Mr. Baiden acknowledged the loyalty of customers and the hard work of employees as the key factors that have driven the rapid growth of Fidelity Bank in the 10 year period. “There is no doubt that our customers and employees are the reason we have come this far. Their loyalty, commitment and hard work have all translated into making Fidelity a top tier bank in this country. We are forever grateful and we will continue to deliver on our promise to help each other grow”. 

Recounting the journey so far, Mr. Baiden noted that during its 10 years of operation, the Bank has contributed to national development to the tune of GHS 240 million through taxes. Through its Agency Banking Model, the Bank has created Smart Accounts for three hundred thousand people (300, 000) people who would have otherwise been unbanked.   The Bank has won about 60 awards notable among them being the Most Socially Responsible Bank and the reigning Bank of the year to crown its 10 years of hard work. 

The anniversary launch was also used to introduce a new tagline for the Bank, “Believe With US”. Addressing the media at the launch, Mr. Baiden expressed gratitude to all stakeholders for believing in the Bank and contributing immensely to its growth. Touching on the new tagline, he said “Fidelity Bank in the past few years has been successful in setting the standard as far as banking is concerned in Ghana and this is evident in the numerous awards won, happy customers and ever zealous workforce. We have demonstrated trust and ability; we want Ghanaians to believe with us to get a better life, complete their education among others. We are asking Ghanaians to join us, bank with us, and believe that Fidelity Bank will help them reach their goals through our unique products and services. Believe with us to go the extra mile and achieve greatness together”, he added.

He noted that going forward, Fidelity Bank wants to take its business proposition to the next level inspiring optimism and audacity. 
The celebration which will be a year-long one will be characterized by lots of activities to celebrate with both staff and customers.
