Nedbank’s private banking heritage

As the name implies, Nedbank was originally a Netherlands-based bank. Formed in Amsterdam in 1888 as “Nederlandsche Bank en Credietvereeniging voor Zuid-Afrika” (Netherlands Bank and Credit Union for South Africa”), Nedbank was closely involved with the Dutch colonies in South Africa. The Boers, Dutch settlers in the country, discovered copious amounts of gold and other valuable resources, and Nedbank supported the growing economy. With the end of the Second Boer War, and the establishment of South Africa as a British colony, Nedbank opened a London branch. It was thus a vital link between the new rulers and the Dutch colonists who called it home.

Major upheavals throughout the 20th century significantly changed the nature of the bank. In 1951 Nedbank’s operations officially parted ways, with the South African bank becoming wholly South African-owned in 1969. Today’s Nedbank is one of the leading providers of quality financial services throughout South Africa. The bank’s area of operations includes multiple members of the South African Development Community (SADC). This includes Mozambique, Swaziland, Lesotho and Malawi. Nedbank provides support to its clients throughout the world with offices in the United Kingdom, the UAE and the Channel Islands.
