1995:
Millennium bim results from an agreement for strategic partnership between Banco Comercial Português (Millennium bcp) and the Mozambican state, in 1995. The Bank launched to the market debit and credit cards, ATM and POS, changing the banking dynamics and a personalized service at the branches.


​​​​​​
2000:
Resulting from the changes occurred, in 2000, in the shareholder structure of Banco Comercial de Moçambique (BCM), the main shareholder of BIM (Banco Comercial Português), also became the major shareholder of BCM. This evolution leaded to major adjustments at operational and commercial levels. Therefore, operational structures have merged, as well as other units, optimizing services and taking advantage of significant synergies, service quality improvements, cost reductions.


2001:
After the merge, Banco Internacional de Moçambique (BIM) was the name chosen, turning to be the biggest bank operating in Mozambique. Similarly, in the insurance sector, adjustments of a similar nature would occur in companies in the shareholder orbit of these two Banks. 

Given that two Insurance Companies operating in the sphere of the two Banks - one in the framework of the BIM, the Seguradora Internacional de Moçambique, and another in the scope of the BCM, Impar, assumed the economically rational option of merging the two companies. From this merger was born the largest private insurance company to act in the national market and that assumes the designation of Seguradora Internacional de Moçambique, being Impar the trademark. ​​


​​​​​​
2006: 
Banco Comercial Português assumes the Millennium brand in all geographies where it was present. In alignment, the Banco Internacional de Moçambique starts to assume Millennium bim as a trademark.

A protocol was signed with the Mozambican Post Office, with a forecast to open several joint counters in the coming years. This protocol provides for an investment that intends to contribute significantly to the recovery of the public assets of postal services in Mozambique. Launching of the Jájá Project, a project in which merchants have the possibility, on behalf of Millennium bim and through a POS, to carry out operations, facilitating Millennium bim Clients in places where we do not have branches.
