Bidvest Bank, (BVBL), is a commercial bank in the Republic of South Africa. It is licensed as a "locally-controlled bank" by the Reserve Bank of South Africa, the national banking regulator. It is a niche bank specialising in foreign exchange and providing retail banking, vehicle financing and insurance.
In 1998, the Bidvest Group acquired Rennies Foreign Exchange, as part of the acquisition of the Rennies Group.
In 2000, following the issuance of a banking license by the South African Reserve Bank, Rennies Foreign Exchange became Rennies Bank.
In 2007 Rennies Bank rebranded into Bidvest Bank. The bank maintains over 140 retail banking outlets across South Africa. It is still heavily involved in meeting the banking needs of traveling businesspeople and tourists, but has a variety of retail banking products on its menu.
