Through its subsidiaries, Access Holdings has played a pivotal role in various sectors, including finance, banking, agriculture, technology, and healthcare, bringing diverse opportunities to the communities it serves.

With a proposed final dividend of N1.80 kobo per share for the 2023 financial year, Access Holdings continues to deliver value to its shareholders and stakeholders, guided by a commitment to sustainable growth and excellence.
