About Us

A Bank Trusted by Millions

In an era where commercial banking services were in an inchoate stage and striding towards transforming different sectors of the economy, Bank of Abyssinia’s founders believed in the need for a bank that gives comprehensive commercial banking services. Thus, the Bank of Abyssinia (BoA) was open for business in 1996 with enthused initiation and determination.
The name Abyssinia resembles bravery and character which are the core attributes of BoA. Its identity is demarcated with a sense of hope, optimism, and belief as it is perfectly displayed in its logo, the Adey Abeba. Adey Abeba brings the promise of a new beginning. BoA brings that very sense to all the customers it engages with. Working with and through BoA brings sustained success with the help of a bank that is a symbol of determination and hard work.
