Named after the longest river in Sierra Leone which empties into the Atlantic Ocean, Rokel symbolizes our national spread and a gateway to banking in the country. When Rokel Commercial Bank started in 1999 following a transition from Barclays Bank of Sierra Leone Limited, we made it our mission to:
‘To provide banking and related financial services in a manner that builds strong, lasting and satisfying relationships with customers, employees, shareholders and the communities in which the Bank operates’.
Rokel Commercial Bank symbolises strength and resilience. This is depicted in the Bank’s logo which has a mountainous highlight as background. For this reason we have challenged local boundaries and provided banking services in the hinterland using mobile banking units.
