Cavmont Bank Ltd (CBL) is a Registered Commercial bank in Zambia with more than 50,000 clients and 247 employees. The Bank was established on 1 January 2004, following a merger between Cavmont Merchant Bank Ltd, (inc. October 1992), and New Capital Bank Plc., (inc. June 1992). In 2006 the Bank's holding company, Cavmont Capital Holdings Zambia Plc (CCHZ), sought a strategic investment partner and identified Capricorn Investment Holdings Limited (CIH). CIH acquired a 44.2% shareholding in CCHZ in 2007.

Discussions held with the Bank of Zambia to find an acceptable manner to recapitalize Cavmont Bank through a rights issue by CCHZ were concluded successfully, with CIH underwriting the rights issue. Consequently, CCHZ raised additional share capital of more than K15.4 billion in 2007 and the repositioning of Cavmont Bank commenced.[4]

Cavmont Bank Limited shareholders support a capital plan for a local bank. Cavmont Bank is a fully capitalised Zambian financial services institution with 19 branches nationwide and over 22 years of banking experience, whose shareholders fully support its capital plan.

The Bank of Zambia revised capitalisation requirements for local Banks and foreign Banks and it is in light of this that the holding company has warehoused 51% shares in Makumbi Investments Limited a special purpose vehicle earmarked for forward offer to local investors. As of 31 December 2013, the Bank has met the equity shareholding and capital requirements for local banks.


CBL is a 100% subsidiary of Cavmont Capital Holdings Zambia Plc. (CCHZ). The investors in CCHZ, and therefore in CBL, include Capricorn Investment Holdings (CIH), a financial conglomerate with investment interests in three Southern African countries: Botswana, Namibia and Zambia. CIH owns controlling interests in Bank Gaborone in Botswana and Bank Windhoek in Namibia, in addition to its minority shareholding in Cavmont Capital Holdings Zambia Plc.
