BASIC Bank PLC, originally established as Bangladesh Small Industries and Commerce Bank Limited, was formally registered under the Companies Act of 1913 on August 2, 1988. Commencing its operations on January 21, 1989, this financial institution operates under the regulatory framework of the Banking Companies Act of 1991. The bank’s inception stemmed from a recognized need within the country’s policy circles for a private-sector bank dedicated to financing small-scale industries (SSIs).

Initially, the bank began as a joint venture with 70 percent of its shares owned by the BCC Foundation and the remaining 30 percent held by the Government of Bangladesh (GOB). However, following the closure of the BCCI (Bank of Credit and Commerce International), the BCC Foundation became nonfunctional, and on June 4, 1992, the Government of Bangladesh assumed complete ownership, resulting in the bank becoming state-owned. It’s important to note that while BASIC Bank operates under state ownership, it continues to function as a private bank, retaining its commercial independence.

What sets BASIC Bank Limited apart is its unique set of objectives. It operates as a hybrid institution, combining elements of both developmental and commercial banks. The bank’s Memorandum and Articles of Association specify that a minimum of 50 percent of its loanable funds must be directed towards investments in the small and medium industries sector. This distinctive approach reflects the bank’s commitment to fostering the growth and development of smaller businesses and enterprises, thus contributing to the economic advancement of Bangladesh.
