The history of a Bank founded 112 years ago
Julien Pouyanne

At the beginning of the 20th Century, Julien Pouyanne left his family in Uruguay to come back to his place of origin, Orthez.

Wishing to take an active part in affairs, he founded in 1903, at Orthez, the Banque Pouyanne, whose head office was to be situated in his home town.

Generation after generation, the Banque Pouyanne is a precious heritage transmitted from father to son, and is now, since 2004, directed by Christian Pouyanne, its CEO.

One of the main aims of the Banque Pouyanne is to maintain its strength in order to serve our clients to the best of our ability.

This is the reason for our implantation along the Adour Valley, with 12 branches, thus remaining faithful to our roots.
