About the book
The chronicle covers the events surrounding the establishment, growth and consolidation of Eurobank within the Greek and wider regional banking and financial system over a relatively short period of time, from 1989 to 2008.
It also encapsulates the institutional, economic and business environment of the time and the emerging dynamics of the competition within the sector, as well as the mentality that formed the foundation for major business initiatives and decisions.
The study is based on archived material kept by Eurobank, articles in the Press, related bibliography, as well as international, EU and Greek legislative and regulatory texts.
