One of the largest banking groups in CEE
RBI was already active in CEE even before the process of political transition started in the region and the “Iron Curtain” fell: already back in 1986, its first CEE subsidiary bank was founded in Hungary. Therefore, the bank looks back on 30 years of experience in the region's banking business.
Niche player on the international markets
To support its business activities RBI operates representative offices as well as service branches at selected Asian and Western European locations.
