Company Profile

Cavmont Bank Ltd (CBL) is a Registered Commercial bank in Zambia with more than 50,000 clients and 240 employees. The Bank was established on 1 January 2004, following a merger between Cavmont Merchant Bank Ltd, (inc. October 1992), and New Capital Bank Plc., (inc. June 1992). In 2006 the Bank's holding company, Cavmont Capital Holdings Zambia Plc (CCHZ), sought a strategic investment partner and identified Capricorn Investment Holdings Limited (CIH). CIH acquired a 44.2% shareholding in CCHZ in 2007. Discussions held with the Bank of Zambia to find an acceptable manner to recapitalize Cavmont Bank through a rights issue by CCHZ were concluded successfully, with CIH underwriting the rights issue. Consequently, CCHZ raised additional share capital of more than K15.4 billion in 2007 and the repositioning of Cavmont Bank commenced.

Cavmont Bank has 19 branches located in Lusaka (6), Chingola, Ndola, Kitwe (2), Chililabombwe, Mbala, Mpulungu, Solwezi, Chipata, Kasama, Mansa, Mwense and Mufumbwe.
