Nedbank’s history traces back to the early 19th century with the establishment of the Cape of Good Hope Bank in 1831.

Following successive branding and structural changes, from The Nederlandsche Bank voor Zuid-Africa to the Netherlands Bank of South Africa (NBSA), to Nedcor Group in the 1980s, Nedbank Group was later formed in 2003 and Nedbank is now one of the four largest banks in South Africa.
