Timeline

  • 1974  Cayman National Bank and Trust Company Ltd. officially opened for business, and shortly thereafter, operated under the umbrella of Cayman National Corporation. CNC’s first President and Founder Mr. Peter Tomkins’ idea of creating a Caymanian-owned bank to serve the people of the Cayman Islands was extremely well received and the bank and trust company flourished, producing a modest profit at its first financial year-end.
  • 1977  CNC offered 100,000 shares to the public, resulting in a broadening of ownership to approximately 150 members.  That same year Cayman National Bank opened a branch operation at Cotton Tree Bay in Cayman Brac.
  • 1978  The Bank’s assets reached CI$10 million; an impressive sum considering operations only began four years previously.
  • 1984  Cayman General Insurance began operations. Later that same year, Cayman Overseas Bank and Trust Co Ltd became Cayman Overseas Trust Co Ltd, differentiating itself from Cayman National Bank. 
  • 1985  Cayman National's first overseas venture - Caymanx Trust Co. Ltd. - was established in the Isle of Man.
  • 1989  Cayman National Bank became a member of Visa and MasterCard, and was able to issue its own credit cards, while Caymanx Trust Co. Ltd. became a full banking service.
  • 1990  Customer Service Centres opened in Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.
  • 1991  Cayman Overseas Trust Co. Ltd became Cayman National Trust Co. Ltd., Cayman Securities Ltd changed its name to Cayman National Securities Ltd. and Cayman National Bank and Trust Co Ltd. amended its name to Cayman National Bank Ltd. In an effort to standardise the name and to update the image, a new logo was adopted.
  • 1998  Cayman National shares were listed on the Cayman Islands Stock Exchange.
  • 2007-2009  Continuation of local and overseas expansion, opening Cayman National Bank Ltd. Oficiana de Representación (Panama) and Cayman National (Dubai) Ltd, as well as establishing Cayman National Fund Services Ltd, part of the International Financial Services operations.
  • 2019  Republic Financial Holdings Limited (RFHL) announced its acquisition (through a subsidiary) of a majority interest in the Cayman National Corporation Limited (CNC).
  • 2023  Janet Hislop, President of Cayman National Bank Ltd., is appointed Chief Executive Officer of Cayman National Corporation Ltd. Cayman National becomes the only major local financial institution with a female CEO.

Established in the Caribbean in 1837 as the Colonial Bank and becoming Barclays Bank of Trinidad and Tobago, the Republic Group is one of the region's largest and most successful financial institutions.
