The 3 Banken Group
The 3 Banken Group is a group of independent regional banks which is composed of BKS Bank AG, Bank fuer Tirol und Vorarlberg AG (BTV) and Oberbank AG.
All three banks (BKS, BTV and Oberbank) operate independently in their core regions, which now extend beyond Austria's borders. We all share the determination to maintain our independence, customer-proximity, market know how in the regions and the commitment of our employees.
The 3 Banken Group exploits the synergies created by the shared companies, such as the 3 Banken IT GmbH (IT), the Drei-Banken Versicherungsdienst GmbH (insurance), the 3-Banken-Generali Investment-Gesellschaft m.b.H. (investment funds), and the Alpenländische Garantie-Gesellschaft m.b.H., which safeguards us against loan loss risks.
There are mutual participations among the 3-Banken. Together with other strategic shareholders, who have also joined together in syndicates and with other shareholders, there is continuing interest to maintain the independence of the 3-Banken (shareholder structure). The 3-Banken Group is thus protected from external influences and the decisions are made exclusively in the interests of the customers, employees and shareholders.
