Erste Group to host Efma’s second 2019 council meeting

Erste Group, the first bank in Austria and one of the strongest financial brands in CEE, is to welcome Efma council members to its head office in Vienna for their second meeting of the year this May.

From 11-12 June, the bank will host seven different council meetings: the Affluent and Private Banking Council, Operational Excellence Council, Physical Channels Council, Digital Channels Council, SME Council, Insurance Council, and the Fintech and Innovation Council.

Each council brings together an exclusive group of senior executives from leading banks and insurance companies, allowing them to collaborate, network, discuss and exchange best practices with their peers in order to stay abreast of the latest ideas and developments in the industry.

The councils are free to attend and available to Efma members only. Non-members are eligible to join the Insurance Council meeting, but must pay a fee to do so.

To date, Efma councils have gathered together more than 242 members from 39 countries. By being involved in an Efma council, members have access to a multitude of networking and knowledge sharing events, including the opportunity to attend three working sessions per year, as well as collaborative sessions, benchmarking workshops, study presentations and sessions dedicated to hot topics such as fintechs and start-ups.

To find out more about the upcoming events, or to register to become a council member, please contact Mailys Mertian (, Efma’s councils programme manager.
