Hrvatska poštanska banka (English: Croatian Postal Bank) or HPB is the largest Croatian-owned bank in the country and ranks 7th in Croatia in term of total assets, worth around HRK 17.7 billion (€2.3 billion).
The bank was founded in October 1991 by Hrvatska pošta, the Croatian national postal service, which was the bank's majority shareholder until 2001. Since 2001, the Government of Croatia is the majority owner of the bank, via stakes acquired by the state-owned Croatian Privatisation Fund (Hrvatski fond za privatizaciju) and the national pension fund called Croatian Institute for Pension Insurance (Hrvatski zavod za mirovinsko osiguranje). HPB is listed on the Zagreb Stock Exchange.
