National Bank was incorporated on 19th June 1968 and officially opened on Thursday November 14th 1968. At the time it was fully owned by the Government. The objective for which it was formed was to help Kenyans get access to credit and control their economy after independence. National Bank is a subsidiary of KCB Group Plc after a successful acquisition in 2019.
In 1994, the Government reduced its shareholding by 32% (40 Million Shares) to members of the public. Again in May 1996, it further reduced its Shareholding by 40 million Shares to the public. The current Shareholding now stands at National Social Security Fund (NSSF) 48.06%, General Public – 29.44% and Kenya Government 22.5%. During the 34th AGM held on 25th April 2003 the bank increased its Share Capital by Kshs. 6 Billion i.e. from Kshs. 3 Billion to Kshs. 9 billion through the creation of 1,200,000,000 non-cumulative preference Shares of Kshs. 5 each. These Shares are at the disposal of the National Bank Board who will offer them in accordance with the Bank’s articles, the CMA rules and the Companies Act.
