Who We Are

Welcome to CIB Kenya Limited

The Bank to Trust

Established in 2017, Commercial International Bank (CIB) Kenya Limited (formerly Mayfair Bank Limited) is a private commercial bank in Kenya, licensed by the Central Bank of Kenya. Headquartered in Westland’s, Nairobi, the bank offers a comprehensive suite of financial solutions tailored to meet the evolving needs of individuals, businesses, and institutions. Notably, CIB Kenya leverages the extensive experience and expertise of its parent company, the leading Egyptian private sector bank, Commercial International Bank (CIB). This strategic partnership empowers CIB Kenya to deliver exceptional banking services while fostering a forward-thinking approach to the Kenyan market.

A Dynamic History and a Clear Vision:

CIB Kenya boasts a dynamic history, evolving from a local institution to a fully-fledged subsidiary of a leading Egyptian bank. Established in June 2017 under the name Mayfair Bank Limited, CIB Kenya received its banking license and began serving customers in August of that same year. In December 2019, the Commercial International Bank (CIB) of Egypt initiated the process of acquiring a controlling interest in Mayfair Bank. This strategic move marked CIB’s entry into the Kenyan market and signaled its confidence in the country’s economic potential. The acquisition progressed in stages, with CIB Egypt securing a 51% stake in Mayfair Bank in April 2020 after obtaining necessary approvals from regulatory bodies and shareholders in both Kenya and Egypt. The year 2023 witnessed a significant milestone for CIB Kenya. In January, CIB Egypt completed the acquisition process by purchasing the remaining 49% stake in Mayfair CIB Limited. This full ownership marked a new chapter for the Kenyan bank, solidifying its position as the first fully owned subsidiary of CIB Egypt and anchoring the Egyptian bank’s regional presence. Following this acquisition, Mayfair CIB Kenya Limited officially rebranded as CIB Kenya, reflecting its new identity within the CIB group. Learn more about us below.

As they do so, every one of them plays a role in creating value for all our stakeholders, from our clients to our shareholders and the communities in which we do business.

This is the cornerstone of our success: banking is fundamentally a people business, and our talented employees are the people who are building the bank of the future and leading the conversation about our industry’s role in building a stronger nation.
