Erste Bank Taking Over Customers From Commerzbank
The Commerzbank HQ on the banks of the Danube at Széchenyi rakpart 8 in District V.
Erste Bank Hungary will take over the customers of Commerzbank Zrt. on December 1, according to napi.hu. Due to the takeover, the financial institution's services will be limited at the beginning of December.
Customers of Commerzbank will have limited access to some services on the last day of November, and they will not be able to make transactions on December 1 and 2.
Erste Bank Hungary branches will be closed on Friday, December 2, and the financial institution will also observe a bank holiday the following weekend.
The online services of retail customers of Erste Bank Hungary will not be significantly affected by this, including non-immediate and group transfers and currency conversions, but they can expect slower than usual performance. In the case of corporate customers, the online channels will not be available during bank holidays either.
From December 5, all former customers of Commerzbank and Erste Bank Hungary will have access to Erste Bank Hungary's usual range of services without restrictions.
