The Bank was originally founded in Egypt in 1978 under the name of Alexandria Kuwait International Bank (AKIB). AKIB was one of the first private banks in Egypt and was later re-branded to Egyptian Commercial Bank. In 2005, Piraeus Bank Group acquired Egyptian Commercial Bank and changed the name into Piraeus Bank Egypt.


In November 2015, Al Ahli Bank of Kuwait (ABK) acquired Piraeus Bank Egypt as part of its plans to expand its regional presence, reinforce the Bank competitive position and provide additional value to clients and stakeholders.
