About us

THE BRANCH


NAFIN London Branch was established in the United Kingdom in 1976 as a representation office . In 1994, the Branch was recognised as a bank as part of the long-term strategy to position NAFIN within the global financial community through its Certificates of Deposit (CDs) Programme.
 
As an institution offering financial instruments to professional clients and eligible counterparties, the Branch is authorised and regulated by the  Comisión Nacional Bancaria y de Valores (CNBV for its acronym in Spanish) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom (FRN172327). Its successful growth has positioned the CDs Programme as one of the main sources of funding for NAFIN, a public development bank committed to promoting financial inclusion, national priority/sustainable projects and entrepreneurship.   
 
In 2017, NAFIN’s CDs Programme was extended to USD 3,000 million, diversifying its portfolio with counterparties across Europe, North and South America and Asia. The London Branch is devoted to foster trading in the wholesale financial markets; add value to the institution and be an active promoter of knowledge transfer to our Head Office in Mexico.
