The Commonwealth Trade Bank was established by industrial entrepreneur Sanjeev Gupta to support trade and industrial growth around the world.
The Commonwealth Trade Bank was established in 2019 when it was acquired by British industrial entrepreneur Sanjeev Gupta through an irrevocable family trust. It is part of his vision to support trade and industrial businesses around the world where there is so much untapped potential for growth.
We are a UK regulated wholesale bank, focused on supporting the international trade, payments and associated foreign exchange needs of clients.
The Commonwealth Trade Bank was previously known as Diamond Bank (UK) Plc. Its former parent, Diamond Bank Plc, took the strategic decision to divest itself of its international businesses in order to focus on its own domestic market in Nigeria.
Managed and operated independently, the Commonwealth Trade Bank is part of the GFG Alliance, an international grouping of businesses, founded by the British Gupta family. The Alliance encompasses mining, energy generation, metals and engineering, underpinned by financial services and a substantial property portfolio.
The GFG Alliance employs around 14,000 people worldwide and is present in more than 30 countries.
