This can only be attributed to one thing: they work. They are one of the fastest and safest solutions offered by financial institutions to their customers.

Their original purpose was to replace cash when it was not available and be able to settle the payment later. The card served as proof of solvency, so its functionality was trusted.

Today, credit cards go beyond solving cash problems and have become an almost indispensable tool in people’s lives, especially because they are used as a basis for managing finances, verifying credit reports, and ensuring solvency for loan management.


This is the case with the Nedbank Platinum Card, which is one of the safest and most solid financial instruments in South Africa.

About Nedbank

Nedbank is one of the youngest banks in South Africa, but it is currently one of the most established in the country. Its headquarters are located in Sandton.

The Dutch Bank and Credit Union was established in 1888 in Amsterdam, later expanding to London in 1906 and to South Africa in 1951, where it became the Netherlands Bank of South Africa Limited. The shares gradually passed into the hands of South Africans, reaching 100% ownership with the purchase of a 20% stake by Bank Mees Hope.

Throughout its history, the bank has undergone a series of name changes and mergers until it became Nedbank in 2005. In 2009, it acquired a 49.9% stake in Imperial Bank South Africa.
