Regulation

Sikamaster is committed to maintaining full compliance with lending laws, and the company takes proactive steps on that. Some aspects of our direct non-deposit taking lending business may require some regulation (even as there are no rate-capping laws in Ghana). Sikamaster Loans will satisfy all regulated areas of our business as and when they are added. Sikamaster Loans is rolling out in phases, and currently at a non-deposit-taking, no upfront fee lending phase that does not require regulation.

Sikamaster currently does not accept deposits and will not accept deposits in the near or foreseeable future. Sikamaster Loans is not providing a regulated service to you, so you will not have access to the Bank of Ghana redress if you wish to complain about our service.
