About GCL

Who We Are

GCB Capital Limited is the investment banking subsidiary of Ghana’s foremost indigenous bank and the largest universal bank in Ghana, GCB Bank PLC.

GCL is your go-to capital raising, financial advisory and alternative/long-term assets provider for public and private corporates, financial institutions as well as Government and its agencies.

The firm complements GCB Bank’s Treasury, Corporate Banking and Consumer Banking businesses to provide cutting-edge bespoke solutions for clients across diverse industries and sectors.

GCL’s parent, GCB Bank, is Ghana’s first indigenous bank, with over 65 years’ experience and the widest footprint, with presence in every region of the country. As part of its strategic direction and quest to remain the dominant force in Ghana’s banking industry, GCB Bank repositioned its former subsidiary, Development Finance & Holdings Ltd., into a full-service investment banking arm, GCB Capital Ltd (GCL) in November 2018.

GCL demonstrates formidable synergies with the Bank’s unmatched capabilities, in-depth understanding of the market and an unrelenting pursuit for excellence

Our History

We trace our roots to the very foundation of our parent company in 1953, in the Gold Coast era, where our heritage firm, formerly called the Bank of the Gold Coast, was established with a core mandate to provide banking services to indigenous businesses. After Ghana gained independence, the Bank renewed its mandate and changed its name to Ghana Commercial Bank Ltd.

In 2018, after more than sixty years of growth, and evolution into GCB Bank PLC, an inactive subsidiary called Development Finance and Holdings Limited was spun off and incorporated as GCB Securities Ltd as the investment banking arm of the Bank, in pursuit of the Bank’s quest to remain the dominant force in Ghana’s banking industry.

GCB Securities Ltd was renamed GCB Capital Limited in August 2020 to provide a full suite of investment banking services with principal activities including: 

  1. Fund management 
  2. Financial advisory and capital market services 
  3. Proprietary debt and equity investing  
  4. Real estate finance solutions 
  5. Long-term financing through debt, equity and hybrid structures.


We aim to be the top-in-class investment banking firm, anchored on trusted expertise and risk-discipline for the benefit of all stakeholders.


To be the go-to investment bank in Ghana, delivering innovative services and the most optimal solutions to our clients.
