“The First Austrian Savings Bank” (Erste Oestereichische Spar-Casse), the predecessor of Erste Group, was established on 4 October 1819, as the first savings bank in the Central and Eastern Europe. Based on bold principle of “spreading and ensuring prosperity”, numerous savings banks were established throughout the region in the following decades.

Novosadska štedionica (Novi Sad Savings Bank), whose successor is Erste Bank, originated in 1864 in Novi Sad as the first financial institution in the territory of today’s Serbia. Novosadska štedionica and “The First Austrian Savings Bank” share a long history and, from their very beginning, they have had the same foundation of values and vision - creation of financial independence of private individuals as a prerequisite for society prosperity.
This crucial foundation idea is today more important than ever before. Prosperity is spread if people believe in themselves, the power of their ideas, and in the future.
Erste has pursued this goal for all people, regardless of their age, gender, social status or nationality.
Erste Bank Serbia continues to follow the principles of its founders and provide support to its client to, believing in their ideas and potentials, make good financial decisions, both for themselves and their family, and for the growth and development of their ventures.
To provide the best financial support to our clients, we build the bank of the future.
How are we going to build the bank of the future?
