What do we mean when we say that we embody these values that bind, guide and drive us?


Integrity is our highest value. Customers and management should always be able to check and ask for proof and should never be disappointed and never rely only on ‘trust’. We keep customer Information confidential and report irregularities to management through whistle-blowing.


We have full knowledge and understanding and always comply to internal and external regulations. We act in line with our code of conduct. If we are not able to comply, we escalate or complain internally. We act as professionals by not sharing passwords and taking full responsibility for mandatory controls. We act, speak and work professionally to avoid any mistakes derived from habitual incidents.

Customer Focus

We focus on the needs of our internal and external customers and stakeholders by offering our support, manage expectations, doing what needs to be done and check satisfaction afterwards. We realize that we should always act as ambassadors of our brand and never forget that our customers pay our salary.


Our job is notfinished as long as we can still support our colleagues. We share and are eager to learn best practices as we are open for suggestions from colleagues. We give and accept specific feedback in a constructive manner. We also feel that we are part of the NMB family and we celebrate together our successes as The Winning Team.


At NMB, we are all innovators! Innovation is inclusiveness which brings people with different understanding, knowledge and experiences to share ideas that deliver incremental and transformational solutions to the Bank. We leverage on this value to provide comprehensive banking solutions that are intuitive, convenient and enhance the overall banking experience to our customers.
