The Banks further stated that this business combination will offer unique opportunities to both institutions. The retail banking operations of Intercontinental bank couple with wholesale and commercial banking strength of Access bank offers a high degree of synergy and complementarities. It will also create a formidable competitor with scale to rival the top banks in the industry.

The combination of the two Banks is of systemic importance and safeguards a significant degree of capacity in the Nigerian banking sector that would otherwise be lost in the event of non-resolution of any of the rescued Banks.
