NIC Bank was founded in 1959 as a joint venture by Standard Bank Limited and Mercantile Credit Company Limited, both headquartered in South Africa and the United Kingdom respectively. NIC was initially a non-bank financial institution (NBFI). In 1971, NIC became a public company, by listing on the Nairobi Stock Exchange, where it still trades today under the symbol: NNIC. In 1995, the Central Bank of Kenya required all NBFIs in the country to either convert to fully fledged commercial banks or close shop. NIC applied for and was granted a banking license that same year. In 1997, NIC Bank merged with African Mercantile Bank Limited (AMBank), a Kenyan financial institution.[5]

In May 2009, NIC Bank acquired a 51% shareholding interest in Savings and Finance Commercial Bank, a small Tanzanian retail bank with approximately US$30 million in assets and approximately US$5 million in shareholder’s equity at the time.[6][7] Savings and Finance Commercial Bank rebranded to NIC Bank Tanzania, in keeping with the new shareholding structure. In November 2011, press reports indicated that NIC Bank was in advanced stages of opening a banking subsidiary in neighbouring Uganda.[8] NC Bank Uganda opened for business in May 2012.
