Savings Bank – A Business Model for Employee, Client and Shareholder Safety

We are guided by the model that our parent company Steiermäerkische Sparkasse from Austria uses the most stable savings banks model for the past 190 years which consists of:

  • Savings Bank model in place of Investment Banking – focus is on transactions with population, i.e.
    small and medium businesses, where credits are refinanced from savings deposits that the bank
    collects, with risk dispersed on a great number of clients therefore kept at a minimum
  • Conservative approach to investments – investments in securities are conducted with caution with
    focus on safety, even at cost of the profit
  • Joint responsibility of Austrian saving banks group for 100% of all deposits (“Haftungsverbund“)
    – Erste Bank and almost 50 Austrian savings banks are jointly responsible for savings deposits and
    form a unique risk community.
