According to figures from the Bank of Ghana (BoG) as at December 2014 Ecobank was the most expensive bank to run an individual current account with.

The pan African bank charges its customers 10 cedis to run individual current accounts.
That figure is the highest starting figure in the banking industry for individual current accounts.
Societe General and Stanbic bank follow and take the second spot.
Their customers are made to pay, in the case of Societe General 7 cedis per month as current account service charge.

While Stanbic bank’s customers are charged at least 7 and at most 35 cedis in order to have their current account in operation.

The next spot, the number three spot, is occupied by three banks.

They are Prudential bank, indigenous bank Fidelity bank and First Bank of Nigeria (FBN)

Prudential bank charges at least 5 cedis and at most 100 Ghana cedis for a current account service charge while Fidelity bank charges between 5 and 40 Ghana cedis.

First Bank of Nigeria also charges 5 cedis.

At the fourth spot is Sahel Sahara bank which charges as low as 2 Ghana cedis to run a current account.
