About KB Kookmin Bank

KB Kookmin Bank is the largest bank in South Korea and is headquartered in Seoul. It was established in December 2000 after the merger of the former Kookmin Bank and Housing and Commercial Bank, both of which had been previously founded in the 1960s.

Both the original banks that eventually became KB Kookmin survived the Asian financial crisis of 1997; it was the need to strengthen the banks after the crisis that made the Korean government decide to merge them. Post-merger, the bank acquired even more companies, becoming the KB Financial Group in 2008.

KB Kookmin Bank is a subsidiary of KB Financial Group.
