Guaranty Trust Bank plc was established in 1990 as a limited liability company with the license to provide commercial and other banking services to the Nigerian public. The bank began operations in February 1991 and has since grown to become one of Nigeria’s most respected and service-oriented banks.
Guaranty Trust Bank plc went public in September 1996 and won the Nigerian Stock Exchange President’s Merit Award that same year, as well as in 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009. The bank was granted a universal banking license in February 2002 and was later designated as a settlement bank by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in 2003.
In 2007, the Bank made history by becoming the first Nigerian financial institution to issue a US$350 million Regulation S Eurobond and a US$750 million Global Depositary Receipts (GDR) offer. The listing of the GDRs on the London Stock Exchange in July of that year made the bank the first Nigerian and African bank to be listed on the London Stock Exchange’s main market.
In 2013, the bank issued a USD 400 million euro bond with a 6% coupon rate, the lowest obtained by a Nigerian firm in the international capital market. The Eurobond was sold to investors in Africa, America, Asia, and Europe as part of the USD 2,000,000 Global Medium Term Note Program, which is registered under Regulation in the United States of America and Rule 144A in the United Kingdom.
