History of Fidelity Bank


Fidelity Bank is a full-fledged commercial bank operating in Nigeria, with over 7.2 million customers served through 250 commercial offices and various other digital banking channels.


With a focus on multiple areas of corporate and small and medium-sized enterprise (MSME) banking, Fidelity Bank is rapidly implementing a digital retail banking strategy that has fueled growth. Savings deposits have grown exponentially over the past 12 years, with more than 57% of customers signing up for the bank’s leading mobile/online banking products.


Listed on the Nigeria Stock Exchange (NSE), Fidelity Bank Plc began operations in 1988 as a commercial bank. In 1999, it became a commercial bank, then a general bank in February 2001. The current Fidelity expansion bank is the result of a merger with the former FSB International Bank Plc and Manny Bank Plc in 2005.

Sustainability Agenda

At Fidelity Bank, we believe that the institutions and societies in which they operate have a symbiotic relationship. This is why we have put corporate social responsibility (CSR) at the heart of our existence since the bank was founded more than two decades ago.


Our goal is to be the best organization in the field of CSR. That’s why we have Fidelity’s Helping Hands program, through which we have initiated, developed and implemented a number of successful sustainability projects and initiatives. As a bank, we are fortunate to have employees who are actively involved in all of our CSR activities. This commitment has, to a large extent, had a positive impact on our host community and society at large.

Our CSR strategy focuses on:


  • Education
  • youth empowerment
  • Health/Social Welfare
  • Environment
  • project


In a highly competitive society, promoting cooperation helps to solve many of the challenges facing society. This includes dedication and resources to others rather than to oneself. This will bring unity that nurtures harmonious relationships.


If we decide to stick to our main purpose of existence, we will miss the opportunity to be cared for, which will of course lead to deprivation amid abundance. To solve this problem, we have to be an economy that cares about solving inequality. We must serve and not be served.


At Fidelity Bank, we are committed to developing quality products and providing quality services that create value for our customers while always striving to give back to those around us.


We have achieved them through the effective management of our human and material resources.


I am proud to say that our employees understand the importance of the Bank to CSR and this is evident in some of the projects the Bank has undertaken under its employee volunteer program called Join hands to support the Fidelity Program over the years.


Since the last publication of ‘Serving Our Community’ (the Bank’s periodicals on CSR) in 2015, nearly 100 projects have been implemented and put into operation to date. I’m excited to celebrate FFHP’s 10th anniversary as we look back at the good memories, how it all started, our achievements so far, and our future plans.
