GuarantCo is a company which enhances local currency debt issuance by the infrastructure sector in lower income countries, sponsored by the governments of Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and United Kingdom.

During his visit, he will be holding strategic discussions with key stakeholders of the Bank including clients. Andrew will also interact with the management and staff of Standard Chartered Ghana and visit some of the Bank’s key offices and facilities.
As the Bank’s most senior person heading the newly created Commercial Clients segment, Andy’s visit emphasises the Bank’s commitment to deliver greater value to the medium enterprises and mid-sized local companies who make up the segment.
Standard Chartered considers small and medium enterprises and mid-sized local companies as key contributors to trade, investment and the growth of economies across the Bank’s footprint globally hence the greater focus on Commercial Clients.
