Ecobank Transnational Incorporated
ECOBANK Transnational Incorporated (ETI) was born out of the need from the Federation of West African Chambers of Commerce (FEWACCI) to create a private regional banking institution in West Africa. The largest shareholder of ETI was the ECOWAS Fund for Cooperation, Compensation and Development, the development finance arm of ECOWAS. It was the first commercial bank in West Africa owned and managed by the African private sector. As such it has a dual objective to build a world-class pan-African bank and to contribute to the economic and financial integration and development of the African continent. Today it is the leading pan-Africa bank with operations in 36 countries across the continent.
