Since its grand entrance into the Nigerian banking sector, PremiumTrust Bank has sent tongues wagging on the issue of ownership structure.
Licensed by the Central Bank of Nigeria in December 2021 to operate as a Commercial Bank in Nigeria, but officially opened for business in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State on the 19th of April 2022.
Two other branches were opened in quick succession in line with the Bank’s branch expansion strategy.
Subsequently, on the 30th of May 2022, the Bank opened its 4th branch along Mariam Babangida Way, Asaba, Delta State.
The branch was dedicated and declared open by the General Overseer of RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye on the invitation of the MD/CEO, Mr. Emmanuel Emefienim and other dignitaries in attendance.
As of date, four additional branches in Abuja, Ado-Ekiti, Warri and Redemption City (Ogun State) have been opened bringing the total number of branches to eight within nine months of operations.
PremiumTrust Bank has a vision to be the most preferred bank by 2027 and a leading voice in consumer banking in Africa by 2032.
PremiumTrust Bank was founded by the MD/CEO, Emmanuel Emefienim (an accomplished Banker with over 30 years top-level experience) alongside seasoned and well-diversified entrepreneurs who have distinguished themselves in various fields and endeavours.
The information on ownership and directorship of the Bank is in the public domain and available on our website: www.premiumtrustbank.com.
The Bank has continued to create value for its stakeholders and Nigeria as a country, and prides itself on best banking practices and professionalism.
This is exemplified by its most recent awards, to wit:-
Nigeria’s Fastest Growing Bank 2022—awarded by the Management of BusinessDay Banks & Other Financial Institutions (BAFI) Awards Committee.
Bank of The Year 2022 (Sports Development)—awarded by the Management of BusinessDay Banks & Other Financial Institutions (BAFI) Awards Committee.

These recent awards are proof that the disruptive way the bank is carrying out its operations has not gone unnoticed.
