Stanbic Bank (Uganda) Limited (SBU) is a commercial bank in Uganda. It is one of the commercial banks licensed by Bank of Uganda, the national banking regulator.[2]

Overview[edit]

The bank is the largest commercial bank in the country, by assets, with an estimated asset valuation of over US$1.3 billion (UGX:3.24 trillion), accounting for approximately 20.5% of the total bank assets in Uganda, as of December 2013. At that time shareholders' equity was valued at approximately US$163 million (UGX:405.3 billion).[3] At that time, SBU also had the largest branch network in the country, accounting for about 18% of the bank branches in Uganda.[4][5]

Group[edit]

Stanbic Bank (Uganda) Limited is subsidiary of the Standard Bank Group, an International bank with headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa with branches in 18 African countries and affiliates in 21 other countries outside Africa. Standard Bank employs over 40,000 individuals worldwide, serving customers through more than 1,000 points of service. Its asset base is in excess of US$174 billion. Stanbic Bank (Uganda) Limited is listed on the Uganda Securities Exchange (USE), where it trades under the symbol SBU. As of February 2009, it is one of the few Ugandan commercial banks with Internet banking availability.

History[edit]

The bank was founded in Uganda as the National Bank of India in 1906. After several name changes, it became Grindlays Bank. In 1991, Standard Bank bought the Grindlays Bank network in Africa. The new owners renamed the bank Stanbic Bank (Uganda) Limited. Stanbic Bank (Uganda) Limited is licensed as a merchant banker, stockbroker and financial adviser by the Capital Markets Authority, which licensed the Uganda Securities Exchange in 1997.

In February 2002, Standard Bank acquired 90% shareholding in Uganda Commercial Bank, a government-owned retail banking operation with sixty-five branches.[6] The new owners merged their new acquisition with their existing Stanbic Bank (Uganda) Limited to form Uganda's largest commercial bank by assets and branch network.[7] In November 2005, the Government of Uganda divested its ownership in Stanbic Bank (Uganda) by listing its shares on the Uganda Securities Exchange. Standard Bank also floated 10% of its shareholding at the same time, reducing their ownership to 80%.[8]
