Skye Bank Gambia has from today December 1, 2020 rebranded to Bloom Bank Africa (BBA), with a firm promise of bringing prosperity to Gambians through it’s new and exciting brand of customized banking solutions.

The transition to the new brand identity comes after the bank underwent a transformation upon it’s acquisition by Oakwood Green Capital Limited, and is line with the bank’s new direction of building a resilient, technology savvy and Pan-African bank well positioned to meet the financial needs of its customers.

Represented by the lotus flower – a resilient species that thrives and blooms all year round despite the weather, the bank’s logo also features three vibrant yet symbolic colours; blue, green and orange, all representing strong pillars of excellence, warmth, passion and dexterity.

MD/CEO of the bank, Mr. Soni Anwal reiterated the bank’s new identity in line with it’s vision at the launch: “We are passionate about the rising Africa, and this is embodied in our quest to Enable Greatness Across Africa, starting with the smiling coast of Africa, The Gambia. We aim to be the conduit for capital into and through Africa for development, creating value for business, big or small, and empowering Gambians and Gambian businesses to achieve more, and thrive. We are dedicated to providing sound financial advice and support to SME’s and to keep these indigenous businesses, which are the oil that moves the nation running always.

Our rallying mantra is “We make it happen”, and this reiterates our unique status as the go-to partner for growth, whatever your aspirations in life are. Our excellent mix of cutting-edge technology, professionalism and track record of superior banking products are all geared towards one goal: to make your dreams happen. Our core pillars of Service Excellence, Innovation, Continuous Learning, Respect and Execution sum up our core mandate – to make it happen for our stakeholders”.




Skye Bank Gambia started operations in Gambia in 2008, as a commercial banking serving the needs of Gambia’s retail and business segments. The bank was acquired in 2019 by Oakwood Green Capital, under a new management and with a renewed vision and outlook.
