ACCRA, May 9, 2023 – Today, AZA Finance released a brief unveiling critical insights in the Ghanaian fintech landscape, emphasising the crucial roles of banks, regulators, and fintech in driving global investment into this thriving market.

Authored by Elizabeth Rossiello, CEO and founder of AZA Finance, and Nana Yaw Owusu Banahene, Country Manager (Ghana) at AZA Finance, the report provides insight into Ghana’s regulatory environment, key statistics and a promising outlook for businesses seeking to establish a presence in this burgeoning market.

The report reveals Ghana’s digital transformation, fueled by tech-savvy regulators, robust banking infrastructure, and the responsible expansion of fintech, as key factors contributing to its attractiveness for international fintech, multinational corporations, and investors.

Notable highlights from the report include:
