Private banking that creates new opportunities.

In an era of global markets, we search for unseen opportunities and find new paths for our customers. Therefore we are constantly challenging the status quo, and combining our visionary approach with a solid accountability.


We ensure our customers stay ahead.

We never stop chasing opportunities. Our customers have different goals, and we employ individual approaches to achieve them. We offer innovative and tailor-made solutions proactively. This is enhanced by close personal contact and up-to-date digital service.


Foresight. Drive. Respect

Developments on the global markets and the growth in wealthy customers demand our careful assessment and foresight. New perspectives, intelligent planning and the advantages of digitization allow us to lead the way.

We have the power, the drive and the size to succeed, and use this strength according to the needs of our customers.

In this way we establish lasting relationships that are built on trust and security. The result is mutual respect as well as a greater appreciation of our customer services.

Our history


Erste Private Banking is part of Erste Group. Founded in 1819 as the first Austrian savings bank, Erste Group went public in 1997 with a strategy to expand its retail business into Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). Since then Erste Group has grown through numerous acquisitions and organic growth to one of the largest financial services providers in the eastern part of EU.

Besides the traditional strength in serving private individuals, Erste Group's core activities include advisory services and support for corporate clients in financing, investment and access to international capital markets, public sector funding and interbank market operations.
