Who we are
We are the bank that says ‘Go For It’, a new entity that creates for the future and drives the country’s dreams by inspiring its people to achieve more with their money and thus their lives.
Merged from two authorities in the region’s banking industry, NCBA is a universal bank that aims to support the aspirations of Rwanda and the region. From its individuals to companies and institutions. We are among the largest institutions in East Africa and a true market leader in Corporate Banking, Asset Finance, and Digital Banking.
CBA started in Rwanda as a Micro Finance in May 2017. In March 2018, CBA merged with Crane Bank and received their license in July 2018. On 6th December 2018, it was announced that NIC Bank, an institution with a rich history in the growth of Kenya and retail banking; and CBA Bank, a forerunner of innovation in the banking space, would be coming together to create an authoritative entity with the financial strength, expertise and regional reach to support the region’s economic growth aspirations. The merger was executed through a share swap, making us one of East Africa’s largest institutions with a total asset base of KES 444 Billion and Shareholder’s Equity of KES 65 Billion.
The Future of NCBA
With these combined strengths, we are better positioned to bolster the region’s economic ambitions, specifically facilitating the implementation of the Big Four Agenda which focuses on food security, affordable housing, manufacturing, and universal healthcare. As a universal bank providing a full range of financial products and services in corporate, institutional, SME and consumer banking, our customers will benefit from our enhanced capacity. From strong relationship management and customer service excellence to leading innovation with our digital banking products.
We are on our way to becoming not just a significant player in the region, but the leading bank in Rwanda.
