About NMB Bank
NMB Bank Limited (formerly National Merchant Bank of Zimbabwe Limited) was established in October 1992 by a group of Zimbabwean entrepreneurs who had previously held senior positions in renowned international financial institutions such as the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation. NMB Bank was registered as an accepting house under the Banking Act in June 1993. Continued growth created the opportunity for a public flotation of the Group, and in early 1997, the NMBZ Group was successfully listed on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange and simultaneously admitted to the Official List of the London Stock Exchange.
In December 1999, NMB Bank was granted a commercial banking licence. This enhanced funding capacity as well as improved product offering. The commercial bank opened its doors to the public in July 2000. Headquartered in Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital, NMB has a network of 10 branches.
