History

The bank was established in 1949, as the British and French Bank Limited (BFB). On 23 February 1961, UBA was incorporated as a limited liability company under the Compliance Ordinance (Cap 37) 1922. UBA took over the assets and liabilities of BFB. In 1970 UBA listed its shares on the Nigerian Stock Exchange in an IPO, being the first Nigerian bank to make an initial public offering. In 2005 UBA merged with Standard Trust Bank (STB) Plc, a Nigerian institution which had a subsidiary in Ghana. The merged bank maintained the name United Bank for Africa.

Since then, the group has expanded to include 20 sub-Saharan countries, as well as offices in the United Kingdom, France and the United States.
