For the foregoing reason, the Bank adopted the motto ‘Improving the Quality of Life’. Ideally located in the heart of the capital, Charlestown, The Bank of Nevis Ltd offers comprehensive services including a variety of deposit accounts with attractive rates of interest, credit and debit cards and loans.
