UBA History

Founding (1948)

BFB was a subsidiary of Banquet National de Credit (BNCI) Paris, which transformed its London branch into a separate subsidiary called the British and French Bank, with shares held by Banque Nationale de Credit and two British investment firms: S.G. Warburg and Company and Robert Benson and Company

Incorporation (1961)

Following Nigeria’s independence from Britain, UBA was incorporated on 23rd, February 1961 to take over the business of BFB. UBA eventually listed its shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE)

IPO (1970)

UBA eventually listed its shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange, in 1970 and became the first Nigerian Bank to subsequently undertake an Initial Public Offering (IPO)

Mergers (1990 – 2006)
