Customer-focused Banking since 1925

Aruba Bank was the first commercial bank ever established in Aruba. When the late John G. Eman founded it in Oranjestad in 1925, the bank was known as John G. Eman Banking Department, which was a sole proprietorship. In 1932, the bank was incorporated into the John G. Eman Bank N.V. to expand its banking activities to support the growing economic development on the island. Four years later, in 1936, Aruba's bustling economic activity required even more capital. The John G. Eman Bank joined forces with another bank, and Aruba Bank was born. In 1946, Aruba Bank opened a branch in the district of San Nicolas to service the Lago Oil & Transport Company and its employees, as well as the community of San Nicolas in general.

Customer-focused Banking today

Today, Aruba Bank has three branches, more than 30 ATMs, and over 260 employees. Despite the establishment of other banks that arrived on the island at a later stage, Aruba Bank has managed to maintain its market-leading position and has become a full-fledged, customer-oriented commercial bank. In October 2003 Aruba Bank purchased the shares of Interbank Aruba N.V. In February 2005, another acquisition took place and Aruba Bank purchased the shares of OHRA Hypotheekbank. Today, Aruba Bank is fully owned by Orco Group.
