GTBank breaks new ground, builds Nigeria’s first digital play centre for children

Banks only build branches, or so the story goes. Except for Guaranty Trust Bank Plc; the
foremost African financial institution, which has been at the forefront of several innovative
products and services recently completed and opened the first digital playground for children
in Nigeria.
Located in Lekki, Lagos State, the GTBank Play Centre is equipped with a wide range of
interactive games that will give kids a fun and immersive digital experience whilst aiding their
mental and intellectual development. Open from 10am to 3pm on Weekdays, and 10am to 1pm
on Saturdays, some of the features of the Play Centre include the Sketch Town, where kids can
design cars, launch rockets, and bring all their sketches to life. At the playground, children can
also use the wide range of bricks available to build whatever excites their curiosity and also
express themselves creatively by scribbling, writing and drawing on a digital chalkboard.
GTBank is renowned for designing innovative and personalized products and services that are
tailored to customers’ unique needs and which fit seamlessly with their lifestyles. Recently, the
Bank launched Habari, a digital platform that gives customers unlimited access to local and
international music, and at the same time, allows them to shop online, split bills with friends
and take care of their everyday needs, in one place. Habari, like the GTBank Play Centre, is the
first of its kind in Nigeria, reflecting the Bank’s digital drive as well as its focus on creating
unique experiences for all segments of its customer base.
Commenting on the launch of the Play Centre, the Managing Director and Chief Executive
Officer of Guaranty Trust Bank plc, Mr Segun Agbaje said; “How and where children play
contributes significantly to their cognitive and intellectual development, helping them build
better communication and problem-solving skills. Our new Play Centre will give children a
tension-free space to build these critical developmental skills, expose them to new and
emerging digital technologies, and, most importantly, give them a wonderful time out.”
He further stated that “At GTBank we are passionate about building the bank of the future, and
for us, this means constantly leveraging the best of technology to create amazing digital
experiences for all of our customers, in a way that adds real value to their lives.”
Guaranty Trust Bank is one of the best run African financial institutions and serves as a role
model within the financial service industry due to its bias for world class corporate governance
standards, excellent service quality and innovation. The Bank is also renowned for driving youth
empowerment initiatives alongside its business, as seen with the GTCrea8 Account package,
which doubles up as a platform for empowering young undergraduates with the resources and

networking that they need to develop their skills and talents and build capacity in their careers
of choice.
