Dec 13 (Lagos) - There are reports of more Banks re-structuring into holding companies to take advantages of the structure which is following by top global financial institutions. 


Access Bank Plc ( ACCESS ) is going to seek shareholders approval to restructure into a holding company as early as this week and expects to get CBN approvals in February of 2022. There will be no additional shares issued and the holding company will become 100% owner of Access Bank.
