Societe General bank branches in Accra

Societe Generale Ghana Limited (SG) is a bank that is based in Ghana, previously known as Société Générale – Social Security Bank (SG-SSB). The bank is part of the Société Générale banking group. The bank is based in Accra and its stock is listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange. It is a component of the GSE All-Share Index. According to its website, it is the 7th largest bank in Ghana and has 45 networked branches in Ghana.

SG began in 1975 as “Security Guarantee Trust Limited” and the next year changed its name to “Social Security Bank Limited”, or “SSB”. In 1994, SSB and the “National Savings and Credit Bank” merged under a World Bank program.

The next year, the government of Ghana divested its 21% share of the bank and it was converted to a public limited liability company and subsequently listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange. In 2004, the bank rebranded as SG-SSB after Societe Generale acquired a 51% controlling interest in the institution. and in 2013 rebranded as SG to conform with the group name Société Générale.

Today, Societe Generale is one of the most established international banks in Africa, but it is the result of a long history with the continent. Tunisia in 1956, Guinea in 1958, the rest of Sub-Saharan Africa in 1960 and, finally, Algeria in 1962: it was decolonization time for France’s African colonies.

In accordance with the legislation of these newly independent countries, Societe Generale changed the status of its African operations by turning its network of branches into a network of subsidiaries. This is what happened with the Société Générale de Banques in Côte d’Ivoire, which was founded in November 1962 in partnership with the country’s government and other international banks. The same process was followed in Senegal, Cameroon and Morocco (where the Group was already present in 1913).
Societe Generale Group then underwent a second stage of development on the African continent at the end of the 1990s: Burkina Faso, Equatorial Guinea, Tunisia, Algeria, Madagascar, Chad, Benin and Ghana.
Following a phase of stabilization of the scheme on the continent, Societe Generale entered a new phase in its development, with the opening of Société Générale Togo and of Societe Generale Moçambique.

As of the year 2022, SG-SSB is one of the leading international banks in Ghana operates 45 fully networked branches, agencies and outlets across the country.
