About Us

Corporate Profile

Established in 1945, we are Nigeria’s longest surviving indigenous bank.

Wema Bank offers a range of retail and SME banking, corporate banking, treasury, trade services and financial advisory to its ever-expanding clients. In 2009, the Bank underwent a strategic repositioning exercise which culminated in a decision to operate as a commercial Bank with regional authorisation in South-South Nigeria, South-West Nigeria, Lagos and Abuja in 2011. However, in 2015, the bank was granted a national banking licence by the Central Bank of Nigeria.

Wema Bank offers a range of retail and SME banking, corporate banking, treasury, trade services and financial advisory services to its numerous customers. The Bank operates a network of over 140 branches and service stations across Nigeria, backed by a robust ICT platform.
