Licensed by the Central bank of Nigeria to offer operating and finance leases and other ancillary services, the Company commenced full operations in 1991. In 1997, C & I leasing Plc concluded a major restructuring and diversification project that saw its conversion to a public company with its shares listed on the official list of the Nigerian stock exchange as the only leasing and rental Services Company.

C & I Leasing Plc has enjoyed consistent growth over the years and has expanded its scope of business to cover major sectors of the Nigerian economy and indeed the west coast of Africa.
