Takarek Mortgage Bank Co. Plc., formerly known as a FHB Mortgage Bank, is a Hungary-based commercial bank. The Bank was established in October 1997 with a share capital of HUF 3 milliard by four banks (Magyar Befektetesi Fejlesztesi Bank Rt., Mezobank Rt., Postabank Takarekpenzter Rt., Penzintezeti Kozpont Bank Rt.) and the Ministry of Finance. By establishing the Bank, the goal of the founders was to establish long-term financing, to create opportunities for long-term investment, and to promote the development of the real estate market. The Bank was granted a license of operation by the Hungarian Financial and Capital Market Supervisory Agency (the predecessor of HFSA) in March 1998.
