Brand Finance Press Release

KBC keeps the crown

KBC retained the leading position as Belgium’s most valuable brand as its value grew by 7% over the past year to €3.6 billion. KBC enjoyed a strong year as it continued to expand its digital offerings and maintain a loyal customer base. 
Looking ahead, KBC’s brand is reaffirming its commitment to Ireland by making that jurisdiction a fully-fledged core country for their group, alongside an established presence across Belgium, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Slovakia and Hungary. In Ireland, KBC is aiming to lead the industry as a ‘Digital First’ customer-centred bank, with lessons to then be shared across the rest of the KBC group internationally.
