Union Bank UK plc is a UK incorporated bank specialising in services to Nigeria & West Africa.

We have been operating from the heart of the City of London since 1983, firstly as the London branch of Union Bank of Nigeria, and since October 2004 as an independently incorporated UK bank and subsidiary of UBN. In May 2022, following the sale of the parent, the shareholding in UBUK was purchased by a group of investors (the previous shareholders of UBN) and we continue to operate as an independent, regulated, UK bank.

We provide a comprehensive range of banking services to customers doing business from and into Nigeria and other West African countries, including trade finance, personal banking, business banking, treasury services, commercial lending and private banking.

We are authorised by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulation Authority and subscribe to the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.
