NMB Bank is one of the largest commercial banks in Tanzania, providing banking services to individuals, small to medium sized corporate clients, government services, large businesses and agriculture lending.
NMB Bank was established under the National Microfinance Bank Limited Incorporation Act of 1997, following the break-up of the old National Bank of Commerce, by an Act of Parliament. Three new entities were created at the time, namely: (a) NBC Holdings Limited (b) National Bank of Commerce (1997) Limited and (c) National Microfinance Bank Limited.
Initially NMB Bank could only provide payment services as well as offer savings accounts, with limited lending capabilities, before becoming a fully-fledged universal retail bank.
In 2005, the Government of the United Republic of Tanzania privatized the bank when it sold part of its shareholding (49%) to a consortium led by the Coöperatieve Centrale Raiffeisen-Boerenleenbank B.A. (‘Rabobank Group’).
Subsequently, there was further divestiture in 2008 when the Tanzanian Government off loaded another 21% of its shareholding to the Tanzanian public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO). The listing of the bank’s stock on the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange has led to a diversified ownership structure.
Rabobank is a full-range financial services provider operating on the basis of co-operative principles. Its origins are in the local loan co-operatives that were founded in the Netherlands more than 110 year ago by enterprising people who had virtually no access to the capital market. The local Rabobanks that evolved from this have a strong tradition in the agricultural sector and in small and medium-sized enterprises.
Rabobank is one of the leading banks in the Netherlands. Rabobank Group employs more than 58,000 people who serve approximately 10 million clients in 48 countries. In terms of Tier I capital, Rabobank Group ranks among the world’s 25 largest financial institutions. Rabobank Group has very high credit ratings, awarded by rating agencies Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investor Service and DBRS. For more information, please visit www.rabobank.com
