Here is what our clients say about us...

  • Quite frankly, I had a minimum understanding of the operation of the stock market and was not even aware of the positioning of the local stock market until I engaged Guyana America Merchant Bank Inc., which was a chance to happen after I was encouraged by a good friend. It provided me with a viable alternative to rather low returns from the traditional local banking system. Best decision I have ever made – and I am happy about the performance. To add, customer service delivery is based on excellence. I am a very happy client. I unhesitatingly encourage you to give them a try.

    Mokesh Daby
  • I have been a customer for over 20 years. I was a walk-in customer just seeing the bank was easy to access and offered good products. I just wanted to save and invest. Good customer service and timely service makes the bank stand out from the others. Since using the bank’s services, I have personally achieved good management. I would recommend them because of their good service.

    Michelle Klass
  • I became aware of the services offered by GuyAm Bank from a pamphlet I received from GASCI which I mistakenly believed facilitates the buying and selling of shares directly to the public. I chose GuyAm Bank after speaking to brokers from several companies because of its stellar customer service. The GuyAm Bank employee I spoke with was very friendly, patient, and informative. I felt at ease and was not rushed or spoken to in a condescending manner. Furthermore, the actual environment at the bank is pleasant with comfortable seats and the service is professional and efficient.

    Narissa Deokarran
    Stockbrokerage Client
  • I heard about GuyAm Bank while researching the local stock exchange and the best brokers available.
    This was the first Merchant bank I worked with after visiting all the others and this was the best in terms of customer service. I was looking for a broker that would answer all my questions concerning buying local stocks. Their initial engagement lasted well over an hour and with a detailed response to all my questions and concerns. I’ve achieved knowledge, profits, and confidence in the local market that I didn’t have before engaging the GuyAm merchant bank. The officers take time to offer guidance that led to substantial profits and dividends in my portfolio. I would recommend GuyAm Bank because of their quick response to emails, the welcoming nature of the staff, and the accessibility to the officers.

  • I know the owners and the management staff from whom I receive personal service and attention. The Bank provides an essential service for doing business in Guyana. The Bank has provided advice and undertaken financial investments on my behalf with good returns. Customer Service is Excellent and the advice is professional. I would recommend Guyam Bank because it is by far the best merchant bank service in Guyana.

    Kit Nascimento
  • After making inquiries to Guyanese colleagues, I was advised that GuyAm Bank was the only merchant bank in Guyana. I only engaged in merchant bank services outside of Guyana but after experiencing Guyam Bank, I found that the quality of service, accessibility, and expertise of the staff at all levels of the bank was superior and made the Merchant Bank stand out. The advice given by the bank generated good outcomes and returns on investment. Overall Excellent advice, high-quality service, and great customer relations.
