Following the acquisition of a controlling stake of 68.7% in Capricorn Investment Holdings Botswana Limited which in turn holds 100% of the share capital in Bank Gaborone, the bank is now a member of the Capricorn Group. Capricorn Group is a diversified Namibian financial services group with interests in banking, asset management and insurance. The Group is listed on the Namibian Stock Exchange. At its inception the aim was to create a financially independent bank for Batswana, in Botswana.
Bank Gaborone has been providing retail banking services in Botswana since 2006 with our first branch on Pilane Road, Mall, Gaborone. After 11 years of servicing Batswana the Bank now operates through 9 retail banking branches and 12 BG Finance unsecured lending offices across the country and still growing. We services both individuals and business offering transactional accounts, savings and investment solutions, loans including vehicle, home and commercial, SME banking and foreign exchange services. Our clients also have access to insurance products through our sister company, BG Insurance Agency.
In areas where we do not branches, we provide access to our clients through 17 ATMs, strategically placed around the country; we are continually working on increasing our ATM network. To enable customers to access their funds at their convenience, we offer them electronic channels including Tobetsa Mobile Banking, E-pula Internet Banking and SMS Alertz.
We are about building and nurturing relationships. We listen to our clients and help them to identify opportunities and facilitate their sustainability by providing relevant solutions or connecting them to the right solutions. We don't bank money, we bank people, this principle is our guide to ensure we maintain great customer service.
Whether it's through the financial solutions we offer, the businesses we invest with, or through the community projects we are involved in we are here to connect our clients to positive change.
