Sterling Bank Plc is a leading commercial banking establishment in Nigeria. It commenced operations as NAL Bank, the nation’s pre-eminent investment banking institution in 1960. Following the indigenization decree of 1972, it became a government owned institution and was managed in partnership with Grindlays Bank Limited, Continental International Finance Company Illinois and American Express Bank Limited between 1974 and 1992.
In 1992, the Bank was partly privatized and listed as a public company on the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE); and in 2000 the government sold its residual interest in the bank, effectively making it a fully privatized institution.
The consolidation of Nigeria’s banking industry saw NAL Bank completing a merger with four other Nigerian banks namely Magnum Trust Bank, NBM Bank, Trust Bank of Africa and Indo-Nigeria Merchant Bank (INMB) in January 2006. The merged entities were successfully integrated and have operated as a consolidated group with the name ever since.
The Bank recently assimilated the Sterling Bankentire business interest of the defunct Equitorial Trust Bank (ETB) towards the end of 2011. This effectively enhanced its position in the hierarchy of respectable players in the Nigerian banking industry on all key parameters.
Today, with a capital base of more than N44 billion, over N508 billion in assets and about 170 branches nationwide complemented by 200 Automated Teller Machine(ATM) points nationwide, Sterling Bank has grown into a major financial solutions provider and justifiably prides itself as “The one-customer Bank” that celebrates every customer as a unique individual.
