About Us

Following the rebasing of the economy in 2014, the creative industry has been identified as a major contributor to economic growth, currently contributing 1.42% to the national GDP, with huge potential for reducing the rate of unemployment in Nigeria.

FirstBank is supporting the entire value chain of the creative arts, providing much needed financing and advisory services, showcasing and facilitating the successes of the industry, and enabling our customers explore the wealth of opportunities the creative industry has to offer.

In line with this, FirstBank has established First@arts, an initiative under which the Bank consolidates all its efforts in the arts.

Through First@arts, FirstBank is able to better meet the growing business, occupational and entertainment needs of her customers. It is another platform through which the Bank ensures that we put ‘You First’.
