Otumfuo Osei Tutu said with its history as a home finance company, HFC Bank ought to work assiduously in developing the mortgage industry.
He said the Bank has a responsibility to work towards retaining its image as the number one home loan provider and to address the housing needs of the people.
The Asantehene noted that housing in general was a major problem confronting the nation. He therefore called on financial institutions to make frantic efforts at providing reasonable home loans to the masses to address the issue.
