List of Commercial Banks in Nepal


Nepal, nestled in the heart of the Himalayas, possesses a banking sector that serves as a crucial component of the country’s financial infrastructure and economic development. With a history spanning decades, Nepal’s banking sector has evolved from its early beginnings to become a dynamic and resilient industry, adapting to changes in regulatory frameworks, technological advancements, and economic trends.

Evolution and Opportunities in Nepal’s Banking Sector

Modern banking in Nepal began in 1937 with the establishment of Nepal Bank Limited, the country’s first commercial bank. Since then, the sector has grown to include various institutions such as commercial banks, development banks, and microfinance institutions, all regulated by the Nepal Rastra Bank (NRB). Key players like Nepal Investment Bank, Himalayan Bank, Nabil Bank, and Standard Chartered Bank Nepal provide extensive banking services across the nation. Recent initiatives have emphasized financial inclusion through branchless banking, mobile banking, and fintech innovations, especially in rural and underserved areas. Although the sector faces challenges like regulatory compliance, cybersecurity risks, and low financial literacy, there are significant growth opportunities due to Nepal’s young population, strategic location, and ongoing infrastructure and tourism development projects.
