Who we are
At a glance
Raiffeisen Bank International AG (RBI) regards Austria, where it is a leading corporate and investment bank, as well as Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) as its home market. 13 markets of the region are covered by subsidiary banks.
Additionally, the group comprises numerous other financial service providers, for instance in the fields of leasing, asset management, as well as M&A. To support its business activities, RBI operates representative offices and service branches at selected Asian and Western European locations.
Around 45,000 employees service 17.2 million customers through around 1,900 business outlets, the by far largest part thereof in CEE. RBI's shares have been listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange since 2005. RBI is Austria's second-largest bank with a balance sheet total of € 166 billion (as per 31 December 2020). The Austrian Regional Raiffeisen Banks hold approximately 58.8 per cent of the shares, the remainder of around 41.2 per cent is free-float.
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 subsidiary bank was founded in Hungary. Therefore, the bank looks back on more than 30 years of experience in the region's banking business.

"New thinking" is not a slogan but an attitude that places shared success with our customers at the heart of all our deliberations.
