FSDH Merchant Bank Limited formerly known as First Securities Discount House Limited is a renowned subsidiary of the FSDH Group. Incorporated in 1992, the bank is one of the first merchant banks to be awarded a licence in Nigeria this new era. For over two decades, we have prided ourselves in the ability to deliver cutting edge financial services to our various clients, thereby assisting them in their quest to create long term sustainable wealth for themselves and their businesses. In 2008, the Central Bank of Nigeria – CBN, revoked all Universal Banking licenses, categorizing banks into commercial, merchant and specialized banks, further categorizing commercial banks into International, National and Regional. At FSDH, we took this change as an opportunity to further expand the scope of our operations, whilst maintaining the core activities and efficiency our customers have come to know us for. We immediately applied for a Merchant Banking licence from the CBN which was granted in October 2012. Since then, we have not looked back in our quest to ensure the provision of a broad range of advisory, investment-related services and corporate financing to our clientele nationwide. All our activities have created huge opportunities for real growth not only for our clients, but the Nigerian market as a whole. As the Nigerian economy becomes more sophisticated and specialized, FSDH Merchant Bank is constantly evolving to meet the diverse needs of our clientele. The Bank offers a wide range of products to all investing clients at various periods depending on their needs. We are specific about our clients so we are committed to creating products that suit their needs at every point in time, while they are able to access them in a seamless manner. Our Culture of Customer Orientation, High Performance, Image Building, Collaboration and Learning remain our driving force. The name may have changed but the soul of our organization remains intact.
