BOV was formed in 1974 following an agreement between the Government of Malta and the Malta Development Corporation.

In 1992, BOV became the first public company to be listed on the Malta Stock Exchange at which time 51.21% of BOV’s equity was held by the Government of Malta, 14.55% was held by Banco di Sicilia S.p.A. and the remaining 34.24% was in the hands of the general public.
