Our Approach

Tailored services backed by local market knowledge

Enabling trade in developing markets

BACB is an international wholesale bank. We provide international trade solutions to clients who want to trade in and out of developing markets.

Based in London, we benefit from our position in the world’s leading financial market. Our location helps us forge close links with the global banking community, and gives us access to multilingual staff with expertise in all aspects of international banking. We have offices in Abidjan, Algiers, Dubai, Munich and Tripoli, plus active relationships in many other countries across Africa and further afield, giving us even closer proximity to those with whom we do business.

Our approach is characterised by the bespoke nature of our service, and by our absolute commitment to a long term, highly effective and personal relationship with all our clients. This approach is endorsed by more than 40 years’ experience in international finance.

We support businesses and organisations across Africa and the Middle East, helping them to achieve their objectives and fulfil their potential. In doing so, we strive to achieve our own ambition of making a difference to the communities where we operate.

Established in 1972, BACB is a UK-registered public limited company. We’re authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority. BACB is owned by three sovereign shareholders.
