Meet the bank FNB

First National Bank (FNB), a prominent financial institution in South Africa, has a history deeply rooted in the socio-economic fabric of the country. Its founding in 1838 as the National Bank of the Cape province marked the beginning of a vital role in the nation’s economic and financial development over the years.

The course of the FNB was marked by several transformations. A turning point came in 1987, when it adopted the name First National Bank. This moment coincided with a period of political and economic change in South Africa as the country moved towards democratization and the end of apartheid. The choice of this new name reflected the bank’s adaptation to ongoing changes and the need to remain relevant in a constantly evolving environment.
