The Imex banka plc. is a 100 % Croatian owned financial institution with full authorisation for all types of domestic and international transactions. The bank has been present in the financial market for 21 years during which it has built up a quality structure of loyal clients throughout Croatia. The bank does business with the biggest economic subjects in our country, but also with small business, trades and citizens to whom it offers a wide range of financial products and services.
The Imex banka plc. traces its beginning back to 1990 when the Imex trgovina d.d. (Imex trading plc.) founded a savings-loan service which was even then, according to valid legislation, called the Imex banka. The very word Imex is an abbreviation of the words Import-Export, as the main activity of the Imex trgovina d.d. The savings-loan service of the Imex banka for its very beginnings worked with the biggest businesses throughout Croatia, and constantly operated with a profit and constant growth. In 1995, the Savings-loans service with its scope of operations, deposits and clients, outgrew the operations of the savings-loans services, and for this reason the Imex trgovina d.d. founded a new bank with the same name, Imex banka plc. As the savings-loan service in its first five years had achieved great capital and a large deposit base, from its initial registration the Imex banka plc. received authorisation to conduct all banking activities which also included international transactions. From its founding the bank has achieved more than 130 million HRK in profits. Today the Imex banka plc., with 21 years of experience in the Croatian financial market is one of the oldest Croatian banks, with a business network on the entire territory of the Republic of Croatia.

From its founding the bank has operated with a profit, while solvency, both kuna and currency, are categories given priority attention and without reserve it puts in the first place the safety of money accessibility, and fulfilment of liabilities both domestic and abroad. Bank policy has always been and remains strict abiding by criteria related to loan and other risks, even at the price of moderate but for this reason stable growth.
