Established in 1974, Bank of Valletta p.l.c. (BOV) has roots dating back to nineteenth century Malta when a group of prominent Maltese and British businessmen founded the Anglo-Maltese Bank. The merging of several well established banks in twentieth-century Malta led to the formation of the National Bank of Malta Group. When BOV took over the business of this Group, it inherited 180 years of experience, goodwill and prestige – a legacy it continues to nourish today.
The BOV Group
Bank of Valletta is the leading financial services provider in Malta, one of the main pillars of the financial services sectors in Malta and the most active player in this sector.
