Corporate profile

Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC (“Stanbic IBTC”) was incorporated as Investment Banking and Trust Company Limited (“IBTC”), a private limited liability company, on 2 February 1989. IBTC was granted a merchant banking licence in February 1989 and commenced operations on 1 March 1989. IBTC’s merchant banking licence was converted to a universal banking licence in January 2002, pursuant to the universal banking guidelines of the Central Bank of Nigeria (“CBN”). In 2005, IBTC became a public company and its shares were listed on The Nigerian Stock Exchange (“The NSE” or “The Exchange”)

In December 2005, IBTC merged with Chartered Bank PLC and Regent Bank PLC and changed its name to IBTC Chartered Bank PLC (“IBTC Chartered”) on 25 January 2006. On 24 September 2007, IBTC Chartered merged with Stanbic Bank Nigeria Limited (“Stanbic Bank”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Stanbic Africa Holdings Limited (“SAHL”), which in turn is a subsidiary of Standard Bank Group Limited of South Africa. As part of the transaction that resulted in the combination of IBTC Chartered and Stanbic Bank, SAHL acquired a majority shareholding (50.1%) in the enlarged bank, which was named Stanbic IBTC Bank PLC.

On 1 November 2012, Stanbic IBTC officially adopted a Holding Company (“Holdco”) structure in compliance with the revised regulatory framework by the Central Bank of Nigeria which requires banks to divest from non-core banking businesses or adopt a HoldCo structure.

Under the new structure, the subsidiaries of Stanbic IBTC Holdings PLC are Stanbic IBTC Bank, Stanbic IBTC Pension Managers Limited, Stanbic IBTC Asset Management Limited, Stanbic IBTC Trustees Limited, Stanbic IBTC Capital Limited, Stanbic IBTC Stockbrokers Limited, Stanbic IBTC Insurance Brokers Limited, Stanbic IBTC Ventures Limited, and Stanbic IBTC Investments Limited.
