These, he said, impacted on operational expenses, investment in information technology, and the yet to be harmonised regulatory environment among the countries where the bank’s stock was listed.
Going forward, Ekpe said the bank’s capital adequacy ratio was now 25 per cent and that it that was growing at 45 per cent per annum in dollar terms.
He added that the bank was streamlining its expenses, while improving its risk style, which reduced its operational expenses

On what is happening in the market now, Elakama said the stock market was recycling now and investors were taking profit, adding that it was normal with stock markets worldwide to experience a rise and fall of indices from time to time.
