PostFinance was founded in 1906 and is the financial services unit of Swiss Post. It is the fifth[citation needed] largest retail financial institution in Switzerland. Its main area of activity is in the national and international payments and a smaller but growing part in the areas of savings, pensions and real estate.

On 26 June 2013, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) granted a licence to PostFinance to become a bank, making it the 5th largest bank in Switzerland.[2]
