Nepal Investment Bank Limited, previously Nepal Indosuez Bank Limited, was established in 1986 as a joint venture between Nepalese and French partners.

It is promoted by a large number of institutions with the largest stake held by Rastriya Beema Company Limited along with other insurance companies, retirement funds, and investment companies. The bank’s shares are listed on the Nepal Stock Exchange. The registered office is in Durbarmarg, Kathmandu.

It is licensed by the Securities Board of Nepal (SEBON) to work as an investment banker and as a merchant banker. NIBL Ace has obtained a depository participant’s license in addition to a fund manager’s license from SEBON and is currently acting in both capacities for its three MF schemes. The company reported a net profit of ~NPR 136 million in FY2021 (~115% YoY growth) over an asset base of NPR 1,872 million as of mid-July 2021.
