GCB Bank Limited (formerly known as Ghana Commercial Bank) is the largest independent financial institution in Ghana.

    My mum purchased the GCB shares in 1996. We've all forgotten about it until today that I called to remind her. I discovered she has misplaced everything concerning the purchased of this shares. Now how can she reclaimed her dividends?

      John, I'd advise that you contact your broker since GCB has been paying dividends regularly, the latest being 38p per share announced in May 2017.

    My father bought shares in 1996. He's been deceased since 1998. Can these shares be passed on to family today?

      Yes. Your father must have had share certificate proving his shareholding. Otherwise, then contact the stock broker in question. However, I'd assume that he'd mention something like this in his will as to whom they should go to or something...
