Hellenic Bank on Friday released its preliminary group financial results for 2023, posting a full-year profit of €365.4 million, while profit for the fourth quarter alone stood at €124.8 million.

Commenting on the group’s financial results for 2023, Antonis Rouvas, the group’s Interim Chief Executive Officer, stated that “in 2023, Hellenic Bank proved its resilience, delivering solid results despite challenges and uncertainty rising mainly from the geopolitical and economic environment”.

“We managed to deliver an enviable set of financial results with a profit for the year of €365 million mainly due to higher interest income arising primarily from Central Bank placements and debt securities, as well as lower total expenses following the 2022 Voluntary Early Exit Scheme (VEES),” he said.

“This confirms the progress made on several fronts, inclusive of our transformation towards a client-centric and technology-driven bank,” Rouvas added.
