Alpha Bank was founded in 1879 as a small commercial firm in the city of Kalamata and since then it has developed into a dynamic Group offering a wide range of financial services.
The acquisition of 51% of the shares of the Ionian Bank that took place in 1999 was a landmark in its history. The new enlarged Bank that resulted from this merger is now one of the largest Banks in Greece.
The Alpha Bank Group is also active in the International market with a presence in Cyprus, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Ukraine, Albania, FYROM and Great Britain.
The Group also maintains a wide network of correspondents (with foreign and domestic credit institutions).
