Brief history

FIE was born in 1985 as a non-government organisation. It was a pioneer and a leader in serving the financial demands of sectors of the population in greatest need. Individual credit was introduced with its own technology. It began operating in 1998 as a Private Financial Fund, and in 2010 became a bank. 30 years since then and Banco FIE maintains and preserves its philosophy and essence of work by supporting the implementation of economic projects, providing access to financial services with equity, quality and transparency. The bank’s challenge is to progress without neglecting a social and responsible behaviour; seeking community impacts beyond economics.


The highest governing body of Banco Fie is its Board of Directors, composed of seven directors and two supervisory trustees – one representing the majority and other minorities. One of its main functions is to define and monitor compliance with the strategic guidelines relating to environmental, economic and social development of the entity. The governance structure of Banco Fie ensures that the Board is independent of the executive management functions. All directors participate in specialized committees that support the Board in its analysis on specific issues related to its oversight.
