In August 2018, The Bank partnered with the Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board to manage a $200 million Nigerian Content Intervention Fund at an interest rate of 8% (currently 6% due to the palliative measures offered to key players in the oil and gas sector). Following the opening up of the economy in 2021 after the COVID pandemic, the group disbursed the total sum of N32.9 billion to about 19 companies creating over 2000 direct and indirect jobs. Notable businesses financed by the bank through the Oil and Gas group include Buildwell Plants and Equipment Industries and Eunisell Limited.
