Union Financiar Tiranë
Union Financiar Tiranë has played and continues to have a major role in the Albanian financial sector development and beyond. UFT established Union Bank in 2006, a bank with 100% Albanian principal. Only 6 years later PayLink was founded, a technology and interbanking payment processing company, funded again by UFT 100%. Union Bank and PayLink are only a part of Union Financiar Tiranë portfolio. UFT continues to contribute and support other initiatives for development.
Union Bank has been operating since January 2006, upon obtaining the license issued by the Bank of Albania for banking activities in the Republic of Albania.
Union Bank was established as a private bank with 100% Albanian capital funded by Union Financiar Tiranë, one of the most successful institutions in the Albanian financial system.
The values and positive impact that UFT has on its customers enabled Union Bank to widen the branch network very quickly all over Albania, opening 31 new branches in 3 years’ period becoming obviously the favorite choice for the Albanian client.
Today, Union Bank is an Albanian bank with UFT as the main shareholder. Part of the shares belong to the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).
