1) Please be advised that we, as an intermediary bank, reserve the right, based on existing agreements with our correspondent banks, to convert incoming payments that are in a currency that is not identical to the currency of the recipient’s country, into the currency of the recipient’s country when forwarding them, in order to try to achieve the most cost-efficient settlement of the transaction for everyone, including for the recipient. Through the conversion, we earn a margin that is market-standard and that is shared with our correspondent bank. However, if in such a case the recipient expected the amount in a foreign currency in order to credit an existing foreign currency account, we kindly ask you to contact your local bank in order for us to be able to adjust our system accordingly so that no conversion takes place.

Take advantage of our group-wide harmonised terms and conditions for account maintenance, statements, etc. for your accounts in EUR and “our“ local currencies.

You enjoy a tailor-made account product which is harmonised for EUR and local currencies according to your requirements.

For detailed terms and conditions please contact your Regional Manager at Erste Group.
