Financial deepening plays a pivotal role in fostering economic growth, alleviating poverty, and mitigating social inequalities. Employing the Vector Autoregressive Model (VAR), this study examines the implications of per capita gross domestic product (GDP), interest rates, and inflation rates for financial deepening (FD) in Ghana. GDP per capita and interest rates exhibit statistically significant impacts on FD in Ghana, whereas inflation exerts an insignificant inverse effect. The statistically significant influence of GDP per capita and interest rates underscores their significance as robust favourable determinants of financial sector development in Ghana. Hence, policymakers are entreated to closely monitor the behaviour of these macroeconomic variables that positively influence financial deepening, as they play crucial roles in fostering economic growth.
