THE BANK OF NEVIS LIMITED

VACANCY

The Bank of Nevis Limited (BON) was incorporated on August 29th, 1985 under the laws of the Federation of St. Christopher and Nevis and opened its doors for business to the public on December 9th, 1985. It was created out of a desire to provide banking services to the local community with the hope that this would assist with the development of the island’s economy. It is for this reason that the Bank adopted the motto ‘Improving the Quality of Life’. We offer comprehensive services including a variety of deposit accounts with attractive rates of interest, credit and debit cards and loans. Other services include ATM services, online and mobile banking, brokerage services, merchant services and foreign exchange purchases and sales.

In December 2019, BON as part of a consortium group of indigenous banks in the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), entered into an agreement with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) to purchase regional businesses operating under RBC Royal Bank Holdings (EC) Limited in Nevis, St. Kitts, Antigua, Montserrat, St. Lucia, Dominica, Grenada and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. The acquisition was completed on 1 April 2021 with BON acquiring the RBC/RBTT operations in St. Kitts and Nevis. Accordingly, BON now operates from three locations in St. Kitts and Nevis and also maintains the former RBTT Bank in Nevis as a subsidiary under the name BON Bank Ltd.
