Global IME Bank Ltd. emerged after successful merger of Global Bank Ltd (an “A” class commercial bank), IME Financial Institution (a “C” class finance company) and Lord Buddha Finance Ltd. (a “C” class finance company).

Global Bank Limited (GBL) was established in 2007 as an ‘A’ class commercial bank in Nepal which provides entire commercial banking services. The bank was established with the largest capital base at the time with a paid up capital of NPR 1.0 billion. The paid up capital of the bank has since been increased to NPR 2.25 billion. The bank’s shares are publicly traded as an ‘A’ category company in the Nepal Stock Exchange.

Pursuant to the liberalized economic policy of the government, majority of the commercial banks have established their head office in the Kathmandu valley. Witnessing the incredible potential the country offers outside the capital, the promoters have established the bank in Birgunj, the commercial hub of the nation. It is in line with the aim of the bank to be “The Bank for All” by giving necessary impetus to the economy through world class banking service.

For the day to day operations, the bank has been using the world renowned FINACLE software that provides real time access to customer database across all branches and corporate locations of the bank. This state of the art customer database has also been linked to a Management Information System that provides easy reach to all possible database information for balanced and informed decision making. A disaster recovery system (DRS) of the Bank has also been established in the Western Region of Nepal (200 kms west of Kathmandu).

The bank has been able to achieve excellent diversification of its assets. A well balanced distribution of exposure in areas of national interest has been possible through long term forecasting and timely strategic planning. The bank has diversified interests in hydro power, manufacturing, textiles, services industry, aviation, exports, trading and microfinance projects, just to mention a few.

The exemplary performance of the bank in these last five years has elevated it to a premier status in the industry. The bank has been handling government transactions and is officially among the only 5 banks in Nepal to do so. The bank has been able to earn the trust and confidence of the public, which is reflected in the large and ever expanding customer base of the bank. Through all this the bank has been able to truly achieve its vision of being “The Bank for All”. Even with all this success, the bank remains internally focused towards manpower development, product innovation and process innovation etc, to have a strong and solid foundation, which are ongoing and continuous improvement initiatives undertaken by the management and staff alike.
