RBI was established in October 2010 through the merger of Raiffeisen International with the principal business areas of Raiffeisen Zentralbank Österreich AG (RZB). RBI's position as one of the leading banks in CEE (including Austria) was further reinforced by the merger. RBI has been listed on the Vienna stock exchange since 25 April 2005 (until 12 October 2010 as Raiffeisen International). It is represented in several leading national and international indices, including the ATX and Euro Stoxx Banks. RZB remained the majority shareholder following the merger, holding approximately 78.5 per cent of the shares. The remaining 21.5 per cent of RBI's shares are in free float.
RZB was formed in 1927 as “Genossenschaftliche Zentralbank” (GZB). Raiffeisen gained its first foothold in Central and Eastern Europe back in 1987, when it established its first subsidiary bank in Hungary. Other own subsidiaries have since been established; from 2000 onwards, Raiffeisen's expansion in the CEE countries has mainly been achieved by acquiring existing banks, which are combined into a holding company that from 2003 until October 2010 operated under the name Raiffeisen International. Raiffeisen International listed on the stock exchange in April 2005 in order to finance its future growth as efficiently as possible. RBI was subsequently established in 2010 through the merger of Raiffeisen International with the principal business areas of RZB.
Raiffeisen's strong roots in Austria date back more than 125 years. Raiffeisen's first Austrian credit cooperative was founded in Mühldorf, a village in Lower Austria, in 1886. Local cooperatives soon started working together and, in turn, founded regional cooperatives marking the beginning of the multi-tiered nature of the Raiffeisen organization. This not only helped to strengthen their position in the market, but also enabled better management and risk control. Numerous product and service cooperatives were founded on the back of increasing specialization and market integration. RBG has achieved its strong market position through healthy organic growth.
