IBK, your financial partner
for a better future.

CEO's Message

We will emerge as a prominent financial group based on financial innovation and
achieve sustainability by enhancing responsibility and accountability.

I am Yoon Jong-won, the Chairman & CEO of Industrial Bank of Korea (IBK).

I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and other customers who have shown their support for IBK.

Since its foundation in 1961, IBK has been a strong supporter of SMEs whenever they were under strain due to the domestic economic situation.

We must empower SMEs in order for our entire nation to enjoy economic prosperity, and it is IBK’s mission to create an environment that helps them thrive.

In order for IBK to emerge as a prominent financial group with global competitiveness, we will innovate our lending practices to focus on potential capability and future growth in the technological-level evaluation, increase the supply of venture capital, and structure a supporting system tailored to the development stages of the investees, i.e. start-ups, scaling-up firms, and pre-unicorns, as part of our efforts to lay the groundwork for financial innovation.

We will also be committed to sustainable management practices, based on strict compliance with laws and regulations, strong ethics, and sense of responsibility, through which we will maintain the trust our customers have placed in us.

All the executives and employees of IBK will dedicate themselves to pursuing change and innovation and practicing customer-oriented management to power the advancement of SMEs to function as the main driver of national prosperity.

I ask that you continue to show your support for IBK as we head toward a brand new future.

Thank you.
Chairman & CEO Industrial Bank of Korea Yoon Jong-won
