CroatiaThe amount of money that banks in Croatia are making continues to fall….

In the first quarter of 2014, profits before tax made by 30 banks operating in Croatia totaled 815.6 million kuna (107 million EUR), down 14.9%, or 143 million kuna (19 million EUR), from the same period last year, according to figures released by Croatian National Bank (HNB).

Zagrebačka banka (ZABA) with 354.1 million kuna (46 million EUR) profit before tax for the quarter, was again the highest earner in Croatia, followed by Privredna banka Zagreb (208 million kuna), Raiffeisenbank Austria (142.1 million kuna) and Societe Generale – Splitska banka (50.3 million kuna).
