Raiffeisenbank Zentralbank and the Austrian Raiffeisen Banking Group

RBI is a subsidiary of Vienna-based RZB. Founded in 1927, RZB is the steering holding of the entire RZB Group and the central institution of the Austrian Raiffeisen Banking Group (RBG), the country's largest banking group.

RBG represents approximately a quarter of all banking business in Austria and comprises the country's largest banking network, with more than 550 independent banks and 1,700 branches. As of year-end 2009, RBG's consolidated balance-sheet total amounted to €260 billion. RBG's three-tiered structure consists of Raiffeisenbanks on the local level, Regional Raiffeisen Banks on the provincial level and RZB as central institution. Raiffeisenbanks are private cooperative credit institutions, operating as general service retail banks. Each province's Raiffeisenbanks are owners of the respective Regional Raiffeisen Bank, which in their entirety own approximately 88 per cent of RZB's ordinary shares. The cooperative idea on which the Raiffeisen organisation is based reflects the principles and work of the German social reformer Friedrich Wilhelm Raiffeisen (1818-1888).
