About the European Association of Public Banks

The European Association of Public Banks (EAPB) was founded on 4 May 2000. Members of the EAPB are financial institutions, funding agencies, promotional banks, public banks, associations of public banks and banks with similar interests.

In 2014, the EAPB has 32 members (financial institutions, funding agencies, public banks, associations of public banks and banks with similar interests) from 16 European countries representing directly and indirectly over 90 financial institutions. As a whole, they have a European market share of approximately 15%, a balance sheet total of about € 3.500 billion and about 190.000 employees. 

The EAPB represents the specific interests of public or publicly owned banks, development banks and funding agencies at the European level.

The EAPB pursues the objective of regularly and rapidly informing its members of all relevant financial, political and legal developments and of measures adopted by the European institutions in the fields of banking law, legislation concerning municipal financing institutions and European economic and financial policies.

The EAPB serves as a contact for the European Parliament and the European Commission providing know-how and information on all banking issues. Ultimately, the EAPB assembles the common specific interests of its members, which result from their particular legal status and function as public banks, and represents them vis-à-vis the European Union, the press and the general public.
