Our story

De Surinaamsche Bank N.V was established shortly after the abolition of slavery. In those days Mr Simon Abendanon worked as a captain and court bailiff in Suriname. There was monetary chaos in the period round 1863 because of the abolition of slavery. The abolition of slavery had freed many people in Suriname, who were allowed to work in return for payment and it was expected that agriculture would flourish. Consequently, trade would also flourish. So it occurred to Mr Abendanon to facilitate this economic growth by setting up a bank that could support economic activities in Suriname. Now 155 years later, De Surinaamsche Bank has grown into the leading commercial bank of Suriname.
