Learn more about Cathay Bank, its culture and history in this section.


Cathay Bank was founded in 1998 to break paradigms, showing that business and trade development between Costa Rica and Asian countries was more than a dream.

We were founded thanks to the vision of investors, and today we are a strong, solid and emblematic bank, which has coined the phrase "Fast and well done" as a work philosophy, and which has become an ally of small and medium-sized Costa Rican enterprises, by offering them products that cover all their financial needs.

Cathay Bank continues to be the only bank in Costa Rica with close connections with the oriental population living in the country; thanks to our personnel at all of our agencies, who are highly fluent in the language and the culture.
