Established on June 25, 1898, the National Bank of Egypt is the first and largest commercial bank in the Egyptian banking sector with a paid-up capital of EGP 50 bn and an issued capital of EGP 100 bn. The bank has the largest widespread network of branches and outlets with 560 branches, and captures the largest 24/7 ATM network. Those terminals provide a variety of services including withdrawals, cashing salaries, cash deposits, payments, invoices, donations, and account inquiries, and they further comprise POS terminals. There are over 20,000 employees who skillfully stand behind the bank’s extensive operations. These resources enable NBE to broaden its reach and bolster its impact in society.
For more than a century, NBE has played a pivotal role in the banking sector in particular and the national economy at large, by carrying out the role of the Central Bank of Egypt and through its customary banking services as a commercial bank until 1950. After the nationalization of NBE in 1960, the bank purely became a commercial bank, but it continued performing the functions of the Central Bank in areas where the latter had no branches.
NBE enjoys a substantial international rank, as reflected through its presence in London (NBE United Kingdom Limited), Khartoum (NBE Khartoum), and its branches in New York and Shanghai. The bank also has representative offices in Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, and Dubai.
NBE boasts the highest financial results in the Egyptian banking market for several years running. This outstanding performance attests to the bank’s crucial contribution and cardinal function in society.
Thereby, NBE has continuously proven its commitment to enhancing the lives of Egyptians. As one of Egypt's top contributors to social responsibility, NBE demonstrated its unwavering support and pioneering role in financing healthcare, educational, and economic projects that directly impact the living conditions of Egyptian citizens.
As a foundational financial institution in society, NBE will proudly continue to uphold its stalwart function in the national economy and consistent support of the Egyptian people.
