BOB is a modern, full service bank with 13 branches in eight islands (Nassau, Grand Bahama, Andros, Cat Island Exuma, San Salvador and Inagua) and a long history of firsts in the local Banking Industry. The Bank caters to retail clients from all walks of life providing personal loans and mortgages as well as savings and chequing accounts, term deposits, money transfers, online banking and prepaid cards. Simultaneously, BOB’s Corporate and Commercial Department facilitates the financing and cash flow needs of the premier business establishments throughout the country. Since 2000 BOB’s Private Banking and Trust arm has also provided wealth services (estate planning, trust and corporate services) to local and international clients.
BOB is managed by an almost 100% Bahamian executive team and overseen by a Board of Directors comprised of seasoned Bahamian business professionals. Whether involving key strategic changes, simple business transactions or the approval of mortgages and consumer loans, all decisions are made locally by Bahamians who know their clientele and seek their best interest.
Since its creation through the acquisition of an established Canadian bank in 1988, Bank of The Bahamas has grown from $90 million in assets to nearly $861 million as of June 30, 2012, from three locations to 13, from serving two islands to a presence on seven, from providing the most basic of retail banking services to the most comprehensive of financial products. In just over a decade, shareholder equity has mushroomed from $19 million in 2000 to $117 million by 2012 making BOB a true Bahamian success story.
BOB is also recognized by the international community. The Bank has four times received the Euromoney Award for Excellence in Banking and was named Best Bank in the Country three times by The Banker, part of the Financial Times Group.
