Figures and ratings

Our ambitions lie behind our figures. Because like your wealth and assets, we too have our own story to tell. And that's something we like being transparent about.

From Belgian merger to European reference

What once started out small has grown on the international stage. KBC was created in 1998 following the merger of two Belgian banks (the Kredietbank and CERA Bank) and a Belgian insurance company (ABB).
Today, the group is active in its 6 core markets of Belgium, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Ireland. We proudly boast:

• 12 million customers
• 1 500 bank branches
• 42 000 employees

We firmly believe that our company culture, strategy and the efforts of our staff are key to earning, keeping and growing the trust of our clients, giving us the capacity to become the reference in our core markets.

The figures prove it: KBC is and remains a financially sound bank

Our solid solvency position in 2019 was reflected in a capital ratio of 17.1%, well above the minimum requirement of 10.7% set by the European Central Bank and the National Bank of Belgium. In other words, our robust capital buffer forms a solid base for the future. Find out more about our capital base in our 2019 Annual Report.

International awards for KBC Private Banking

Our aim as a private banker is to inspire, boost and stimulate those who count on us, day after day. What we do is enable you and others like you to grow, helping make your dreams come true and then protecting those dreams.

Indeed, this philosophy has received due recognition and appreciation in the professional world. The Financial Times has named KBC Private Banking the ‘Best Private Bank in Belgium’ on 5 separate occasions. And we have received no fewer than 7 Euromoney Awards in 8 years from the prestigious London-based banking magazine of the same name.

… and our clients' trust

The 4 864 responses to surveys carried out in 2020 reveal that 93.6% of the clients surveyed gave KBC Private Banking a recommendation score of 8 out of 10 or higher, when asked ‘To what extent would you recommend KBC Private Banking to your friends or family?’
An average score of 9 out of 10 shows that our clients have every confidence in our services and would also recommend them to someone close.

Focus and care for society

As a large company, we can also use our operations to help shape society, which is precisely what we aim to do in the area of sustainability. The KBC Report to Society contains everything you need to know about our sustainability targets.
