This arrangement was formalised in 1969 when Lombard Bank (Malta) Limited was registered as a wholly owned subsidiary of Lombard North Central plc. Today the Bank is privately owned with the single largest shareholding (circa 49%) held by Cyprus Popular Bank Public Company Ltd. of Cyprus and the remaining shares in free float on the Malta Stock Exchange.
