Top List of Banks in Czechia
Czechia has seen a remarkable level of bankers entering the Czech market. They are serving the fantastic growth of the country and are well known as leading experts in incorporation and related services. The government subsidizes banks and other financial institutions. More than three-quarters of the banking sector is privately owned, but state-controlled banks still control nearly two-fifths of total assets. Although the Czech Republic is not a member of the eurozone or pegged to the euro, many investors do not see significant risks in this situation and passively accumulate koruna on their balance sheets.
