Brief About Union Bank
Union Bank of Nigeria can be traced to 1917 when it was first established as Colonial Bank. In 1993, in line with its privatization/commercialization drive, the Federal Government divested on Union bank by selling its controlling shares of 51.67% to private investors. Thus, Union Bank became fully owned by Nigerian citizens and organizations all within the private sector. During the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) banking sector consolidation policy, Union Bank of Nigeria Plc acquired the former Universal Trust Bank Plc and Broad Bank Ltd. and absorbed its one-time subsidiary, Union Merchant Bank Ltd. In compliance with CBN’s Regulation 3, UBN divested of all their non-core banking subsidiaries, which aligns with her core banking business model. Union Bank, United Kingdom (UBUK) remains the only subsidiary of the bank of Union bank.
