Standard Bank is the official sponsor of the First-Time Buyer Theatre, where first-time home buyers will be able to hear property experts giving advice on all of the ins and outs of buying your first home. “We chose to get involved with the Property Buyer Show as we felt it fits in line with our purpose of improving lives and fulfilling aspirations through home ownership for all in South Africa,” says Andrew van der Hoven of Standard Bank South Africa.

Our key differentiator is people who are passionate about our strategy wherever in the world they are based.

First National Bank is one of the most innovative banks in the world; let us make your dream come true by assisting with your first home loan or that property investment that you are looking for. Our awesome team of Consultants and Private bankers will take you through the journey.
FNB is the oldest bank in South Africa, and can be traced back to the Eastern Province Bank formed in Grahamstown in 1838. Today, FNB trades as a division of FirstRand Bank Limited. When looking at FNB's history, two things in particular stand out. The first is a story of survival - different circumstances in South Africa have posed many great challenges in our history, all of which FNB has successfully met. This track record provides a strong foundation for our future challenges. The second is a story of people - our history has always been firmly influenced by the needs of the people we serve.
The Acacia tree in our brand logo is a suitable representation of our history. Our roots run deep in South Africa, and we have grown thanks to our commitment to serving the needs of our clients and communities.
A landmark development in FNB's history took place in 1998 when the financial services interests of Rand Merchant Bank Holdings and Anglo American were merged to form FirstRand Limited. In the process, FNB was delisted from the JSE on 22 May 1998 to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of FirstRand, which was listed on the JSE on 25 May 1998. On 30 June 1999, the banking interests of FirstRand formally merged into a single entity to form FirstRand Bank. FNB, WesBank and RMB now trade as divisions of FirstRand Bank.
