Otsar HaHayal was founded in 1946 in the British Mandate of Palestine as a means for Jewish war veterans to store their assets. It was a bank only for soldiers until 1972, and had business partners within the IDF.
In 1972, it became an official bank and opened up to the general public, although it still largely kept its association with military assets. It was purchased by Bank Hapoalim in 1977.
By 1996, Otsar HaHayal completely transformed into a commercial public bank.
