 The Banker: Central European giant looks to Balkans for new borrowers
Erste’s chief executive, Andreas Treichl, who has led the bank’s expansion from the beginning, believes that the full extent of this potential has not been reached yet.
Erste believes it is best placed to benefit from this coming convergence because its banks in the Czech Republic and Slovakia have access to a huge client base to which they can cross-sell products from the rest of the Erste group.
Erste’s problem is that the slowdown in profit growth, because of lower net interest margins and falling gains from restructuring, is happening now.

 Interview with Reinhard Ortner, Erste Bank der Osterreichischen Sparkassen: TWST
Ortner: The bank in its present shape is the result of a merger that took place almost five years ago, when the oldest savings Bank of Austria merged with GiroCredit, which was the central institution in the savings bank sector in Austria.
So this offers an excellent opportunity for us to buy and partly build banking institutions and to reorganize and integrate them into Erste Bank, in order to make sure that the quality of service that we offer here in Austria will also be available to the population in the area.
These countries on their way to Europe need banking institutions, of which private households, small and medium size companies, can avail themselves and where the necessary accumulation of liquid means takes place, so that infrastructure finance, mortgage finance can be enhanced.
