The banks listed might be large national banks but for the sake of international trades and networks these shortlist of banks for small business IS NOT SUITABLE. It must include Chinese and west African banks. It has to be the best international banks in the U.S. that has branches in Africa and China for small businesses and startups. The intention is for access to easy loans to expand business or moving things fast. I’d rather open a business account with an international bank operating in the U.S and west Africa first. The rest is too much hustle and waste of scarce cash.
Banking is an important human activity that keeps economic growth afloat, its not going anywhere anytime soon. The banks fight turf wars and pretty territorial so one has to be careful. For example, the biggest international bank in Accra, Ghana is Standard Chartered Bank (also in UK if you live there). So the banks fight turf wars so others would not poach on their customers and charge hefty fees for transaction, what do you do?
Well for now a small startup that does business in both America and west Africa would have to do with Western Union or Paypal for now.
