In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, e-commerce demand has risen exponentially and the ‘Safe is Smart’ campaign demonstrates the commitment of the two companies to provide greater convenience to businesses and individuals during and after the pandemic.

Bossman Kwapong, Head, Products and Segments, Retail Banking at Standard Chartered Bank, said that the Bank is always looking for ways to live up to its brand promise ‘Here for Good’ and will continue to trailblaze digital revolution in the banking industry by providing the best digital lifestyle for its clients.

He noted that “To the Bank, payments represent the life force of Ghana’s economy and we have collaborated with Visa, the world’s leader in digital payments, to continue delivering increasingly convenient and seamless payment capabilities through our fully digital bank on mobile – SC Mobile App. This campaign is timely because our clients will get to know the safe and smart ways of transacting through Standard Chartered during and beyond COVID-19”.

“We recognize that the impact of COVID-19 continues to reshape much of our daily lives so we’re working with our partners to ensure that our capabilities are made widely available and updated specifically to help meet today’s challenges. We will do this not only during the challenging period but more so as our world gets moving again”, noted Adoma.
