Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. was incorporated as a result of a merger of Bank Zachodni S.A. with Wielkopolski Bank Kredytowy S.A. in 2001. That year, the Bank’s shares debuted on the Warsaw Stock Exchange. On 1 April 2011, Banco Santander became the majority shareholder of the Bank (currently with a 68.13% stake). Nearly 2 years later, on 4 January 2013, Bank Zachodni WBK S.A. merged with Kredyt Bank S.A.
