Bank of Ayudhya Public Company Limited (Krungsri) officially opened its doors on April 1, 1945. We found immediate public favor, grew rapidly, and listed on the Stock Exchange of Thailand on September 26, 1977.
Our core philosophy is founded on good governance. Adherence to the highest ethical standards and a steadfast commitment to transparency form the keystone of our business. This is essential considering we are entrusted with the honor of protecting our customers savings and investments.
Our steady growth has continued unabated to the present day. As of June 2022, Krungsri had a total registered capital of THB 75,741 million and THB 73,558 million in paid-up capital. Krungsri is Thailand’s fifth largest universal bank in terms of assets, loans, and deposits today.

The company provides microfinance services to under-banked and unbanked segments, which mirror our efforts in improving financial access in the underserved segments and our responsible lending practices and adhering.
In 2013, Krungsri reached key milestone in our history when we became a subsidiary of MUFG Bank, Ltd. (MUFG Bank)*, which is the wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG), Japan’s largest banking group and one of the world’s largest financial groups.
This major development leveraged both Krungsri’s and MUFG Bank’s complementary strengths to put Krungsri at the forefront of the Thai banking industry. Given that MUFG Bank is a world-class financial institution with a business network covering more than 50 countries worldwide, the partnership has strengthened Krungsri’s leading position in the retail banking business in Thailand and across the region by broadening the Bank’s customer base. It has also significantly enhanced the potential and capability of Krungsri’s corporate and SME banking businesses, particularly the opportunity to access Japanese enterprises in Thailand and across ASEAN.
On September 2017, Krungsri was recognized as “A Domestic Systemically Important Bank (D-SIB)” by the Bank of Thailand, playing a key role in driving the country’s economic engines and financial system.
Krungsri has declared the Environmental and Human Rights Disclosure Statements in 2018, the Bank’s first-ever declaration aimed to make a commitment to all stakeholder groups regarding Krungsri’s business directions, and social and environmental dimensions. Based on MUFG statements, and opinions given by external experts and internal and external stakeholders, the Bank’s disclosure statements were made in conformity with our operations, expectations from supervisory bodies, along with the Thai context and environment, and will become our main guideline for sustainable practices until any change is made in the future.
On October 2019, Krungsri issued the first private-sector “gender” bond in the Asia Pacific region and the first social bond issuance in Asian emerging markets in compliance with the International Capital Markets Association Social Bond Principles and Social Bond Standards.
