About us

HISTORY

National Bank of Vanuatu was formally established under the National Commercial and Trading Bank of Vanuatu Act in 1989 and commenced trading in 1991.

The company took over the business formerly conducted by the Vanuatu Cooperatives Savings Bank Limited. The establishment of NBV was responsible for providing efficient and reliable banking services throughout Vanuatu.

The company continues to hold a growing proportion of the local banking market share due to our presence in the main centres as well as in thirty other remote locations.

We are “the peoples’ bank” and our services are available to most of the population. Our company offers a comprehensive range of services in rural, retail, business, international, treasury and investment banking.
