About Zenith Bank Nigeria/ Company Profile

According To Wikipedia. Zenith Bank Is one of the largest financial institutions in Nigeria and Anglophone West Africa. The bank was issued its license for operation as a commercial bank by the Nigeria Apex Bank (CBN) which is the national financial and banking regulator in the country.
As of 31 December 2019, the bank holds $16 billion as total assets and $854 million as shareholder’s equity.
Around the 1990s, the Nigerian banking industry was led by four major banks, Union Bank, First Bank, UBA, and Afribank. But with time, zenith bank found a way to dominate the financial sector of the country.

In 1999, zenith bank embraced the use of internet marketing for its financial services and to promote the use of online banking by its consumers. This was one of the reasons why the bank dominated the online banking industry due to the massive investment the bank put into the service.

By the 2000s, the profile of the bank began to rise and it becomes the talk of every household in the country. The bank’s investment in information technology helped the bank to compete against major banks in the country who are having a larger branch outreach and it started to announce its net profit which was almost comparable with some of these older banks which have been existing over the years.
On 17 June 2004, following a successful IPO, the bank became a public limited company. On 21 October 2004 its shares of the stock were listed on the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE). The bank’s shares are traded on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) following a listing of the $850 million worth of its shares at $6.80 each, in 2013.
The bank has equity investments in Zenith Custodian, Zenith Securities, and Zenith General Insurance.
