Our 20-year Journey in Kosova

Raiffeisen Bank is celebrating its 20th anniversary in Kosovo this year. The bank was named Raiffeisen in June 2003 after Raiffeisen Bank International (RBI) purchased 100% of the shares of the then American Bank of Kosovo. While the bank was operating in the context of a rebuilding economy at the time, Raiffeisen is currently the largest bank in Kosovo in all significant financial measures, with total assets of 1.3 billion euros as of June 2023.

To summarize this extraordinary journey, we have come up with simple slogan: Support. Responsibility. Innovation. Far more than a slogan, however, these statements have represented the guiding principles of our work.

Over the past two decades, we have strived to provide high-quality financial services to individuals and businesses, supporting their plans and ideas, and in return, enabling sustainable growth in the country. Responsibility has been at the core of our operations. We have embraced the values of responsible banking, ensuring that we prioritize the well-being of our customers, partners, employees, and the community in general. And of course, Innovation has been a fundamental pillar of our strategy. By developing and introducing many digital solutions and products, we have continuously improved the banking experience of our customers.

“Raiffeisen is a very good example of foreign Austrian investment in Kosovo. We are proud to have contributed and to be part of a successful banking system in Kosova,” says CEO Anita Kovacic.

“Our success has been achieved by providing sustainable banking products and services, the trust of our customers, engagement of our employees, as well as professional collaboration with regulators and other community institutions and partners. On behalf of Raiffeisen I want to thank all who have chosen Raiffeisen as their bank or business partner.”

Given the context in which Raiffeisen Bank entered Kosovo market in 2003, it is safe to say that the bank has had a unique journey of growing together with the customers, partners, and the employees. And the bank will continue to count on all of them as it looks towards a bright future!
