Innovative management techniques enable us to structure creative, individualized services and products for our clientele.


Due to the fact that we are representing the island of Cyprus globally, and that the island is famous for number of castles and fortresses, we took this inspiration and named our bank as “FORTRESS”.
We maintain our Head offices in the birth place of Aphrodite, addressed at No: 9, Sh.Huseyin Pasa Avenue, Yeni Sehir, Lefkosa, Cyprus. Cyprus is proudly reclaiming its ancient honor of being the birthplace of the goddess Aphrodite, and is offers a tasteful re-creation of her ancient rites. The goddess of love and beauty knew what she was doing when she chose the lovely island of Cyprus as the site of her emergence from the sea-foam.
