Bank of Jerusalem, Ltd. is Israel's seventh largest bank, with total assets of 9,301 million shekels.[1]

History[edit]

The bank was founded in 1963 as a mortgage bank and in 1992 had an initial public offering on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. In August 1998, Bank of Jerusalem received a commercial banking license from the Bank of Israel, replacing the financial-institution license that it had held until then. By obtaining this license, Bank of Jerusalem completed its transformation into a commercial bank that specializes in real estate, the capital market, and international banking.[1]

Bank of Jerusalem is headquartered in Jerusalem and has seventeen branches around the country.

The Bank is controlled by Export Investment Corp., Ltd., a public company controlled by the Shoval family.
