APS Bank is an institution with a long history of activity covering the financial needs of the widest spectrum possible of the local personal and commercial fabric. Medium to long term strategic decisions taken less than two decades ago saw the Bank grow from a small savings bank into a force to be reckoned with, especially in niche areas such as housing, agriculture and fisheries, sport and education.
Undoubtedly, the recruitment of highly qualified staff members, all well versed in different areas of management, professions and specific sector knowledge, has enabled APS reach much higher corporate objectives. Supported with much needed capital injection in areas such as information technology infrastructure and distribution network, the Bank has become more accessible to a vaster audience.
