United Bank For Africa Plc to open in six new countries
While not giving out the exact countries, the Head, Investor Relations, UBA Plc, Mr. Abiola Rasaq, explained that the bank’s operating license in some of the African countries allows it to expand into some neighboring countries without raising fresh capital.
“There are two different types of licences. There is the unit licence and uniform licence. The unit licence only allows you to operate in just one country. In Senegal today, we have a uniform licence. That uniform licence gives us the priority to actually passport our licence for example into Mali, if we think Mali is right. So, our business in Chad today, holds a uniform licence that gives us the opportunity to passport that licence into Niger Republic if we think the timing is right and there are opportunities in those markets. So, this is a strategy we want to use to go into those markets we are targeting.”
This is an endorsed movement to permanent site, pray that your business shall experience similar grace.
