The story of BT

We have been growing in Romania for 30 years and we have seen Romania grow. And it's been beautiful.

It's often been hard, but it's always been exciting.

We've heard ideas and seen them become reality.

All the while, we have seen that we have someone to rely on, someone to work with, someone who can put their shoulder to the wheel, and that Romania has reasons to be optimistic.

And we are proud to be the bank of the most enterprising years in the country's history.
