42nd anniversary of the bank’s foundation as the best customer-oriented bank
As the bank with the nation’s largest global network, KEB is fast becoming the leading customer-oriented bank in Korea on account of its specialized knowledge in the foreign exchange sector and other high-quality services it provides. Due to its strategic marketing practices and effective use of capital and manpower, KEB is setting the pace for all other banks to follow, making it an industry leader. KEB surpassed 1 trillion won in net profits for 2005 and 2006. As a global bank representing one of the most dynamic regions in the world, Northeast Asia, KEB has been securing the top position in terms of capital level, profitability and asset soundness since its establishment.
In late October 2003,
The Bank succeeded in attracting over trillion won in new capital investment from Lone Star, thereby expanding its equity capital and creating the platform to drive ahead. Strong revenue generation and the self-motivated efforts of the Bank’s staff enabled KEB to overcome the challenges from the financial crisis in 1998.

Established in 1967
As a government-owned bank specializing in foreign exchange, KEB came to hold an unrivalled position in trade finance and global finance. After being privatized in 1989, the Bank solidified its standing as one of Korea’s premier commercial banks with a competitive presence in both the corporate and private banking fields.
