List Of ABSA Branches In Uganda
The Absa Bank Uganda Limited was formerly called Barclays Bank of Uganda. Absa Bank Uganda is licensed by the Central Bank of Uganda, which is the body that regulates the national banks in the country.
Barclays Bank Uganda began rebranding to Absa Uganda way back in August 2019.
By November 2019, the rebranding process was fully completed, and Barclays Bank was Successfully changed to Absa.
Since then, the business and legal names of Barclays Bank in Uganda became Absa Bank Uganda Limited.
WHAT IS THE FULL MEANING OF ABSA?
ABSA is an acronym that stands for “Amalgamated Banks of South Africa”.
Yes, that is the full meaning of Absa. Maybe you didn’t know, so I see this as a piece of information for you.
From its name, Absa is fully owned and managed by the ABSA Group Limited.
But which banks make up the ABSA Group?
In 1991, Absa was formed as a result of the merger of some financial service providers, including the Sage Group, United Bank, Volkskas Bank Group, the Allied Bank, etc.
Now that you know a bit of information about what Absa is and what it is made of, it is time for me to go to the business of the day, which is giving you the list of Absa branches in Uganda.
So in effect, it is the Absa bank logo and colors that will be used at the banking halls as well as other Absa services instead of the old Barclays Bank colors.
