The bank ranks as the fifth largest bank in Thailand in terms of assets, loans and deposits.[3] KRUNGSRI provides banking, consumer finance, investment, asset management and other financial products and services to individual customers, SMEs, and large corporations through its branches and service outlets nationwide.


The bank was established on 27 January 1945 in Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya Province, the old capital of Thailand back in 1350. Bank of Ayudhya officially opened its door on April 1, 1945 with a registered capital of one million baht. During the same year, the Bank's Head Office was founded on Rajawongse Road in Bangkok.

The Bank's Head Office was relocated to the corner of Anuwongse Road in 1948 and to Lampoonchai Road in 1950. The official inauguration ceremony was conducted in 1951 to mark business growth of the Bank and accommodate an augmented number of customers. In 1970, the Bank's Head Office was relocated to Ploenchit Road, coinciding with the Bank's celebration of the Royal Appointment (Garuda) Emblem, granted by His Majesty the King, to the Bank on 15 May 1970. The Bank listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand on September 28, 1977. (SET: BAY)
