Banco Cathay

Banco Cathay was founded 19 years ago to break paradigms and demonstrate that business and trade development between Costa Rica and Asian countries is more than just a dream. We were born thanks to the vision of our investors. Today we are a strong, solid, and emblematic bank that has coined the phrase “Fast and Well Done” for our work philosophy. We have developed alliances with small and medium Costa Rican companies to which we offer products that cover all of their financial needs. Equivalent to the Bank of China and the China Development Bank, we are the only private bank across Central America, providing unequaled facilities with those banks for our customers to do business in the People's Republic of China. During the past 19 years, Banco Cathay continues to be the only bank in Costa Rica with close connections with the oriental population living in the country, thanks to our personnel at all of our branches, who are familiar with Asian languages and cultures. We have tripled our size in the last three years and today we have a team of more than 200 employees, with 14 branches and  assets exceeding US$258 million.
