On 6 January 2012, the institution commenced business as Jaiz Bank Plc in offices and branches in Abuja, Kaduna and Kano.

In 2013, Jaiz Bank was in the process of expanding to urban centers in all states of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. In pursuit of that goal, the bank had received approval to increase shareholders’ capital from the then current value, to US$92.3 million (NGN:14.3 billion). In January 2013, print media reports indicated that, at that time, shareholder’s equity in the bank exceeded US$71 million (NGN:11 billion). The bank is expected to apply for a national banking license, once it meets its shareholders’ capital objectives.
