Type of Financial Institution

We have been the bank for Aargau residents since 1854. In this review we show you how our motto "Security against risk and profit" has proven its worth - from the foundation to the present day.

The state should ensure that a lending bank is set up in a convenient manner and encourage the establishment of savings" - this provision was incorporated into the state constitution in 1852. In May 1854, the Great Council initiated the founding of the Aargauische Bank, which began operations at the beginning of 1855. The bank was founded as a semi-public institute: the state held half of the share capital of 1 million Swiss francs and was liable for all obligations on a subsidiary basis. In 1857 the bank acquired the area on Bahnhofstrasse in Aarau and had a building built on it in the classical style. In 1912 the Aargau people agreed to convert the institute into a state bank. On January 1, 1913, the Aargauische Kantonalbank started its business activities.
