GCB Changes It’s Name, See The Reason

One of the leading financial institutions in the country GCB Bank Limited has changed it’s name to GCB Bank PLC.

Eventhough the change of name from GCB Bank Limited to GCB Bank PLC seems insignificant, there is a lot to it as the new name of the bank reflects it’s shareholding arrangements.

Difference Between Limited and Public Limited Company

Limited refers to private company whose owners are legally responsible for it’s debts only to the extent of the amount of capital they invested.

Public Limited Company (PLC) designates a company that has offered shares of stock to the general public. The buyers of those shares have limited liability meaning that they cannot be held responsible for any business losses in excess of the amount they paid for the shares.
