The bank was established in 1921 by the World Zionist Organization and the Histadrut (National Israeli Trade Union). The bank operates several international branches, in the USA (New York City, Miami), in Canada, Europe (Switzerland, Luxemburg), South America, and the Cayman Islands. The bank's stock's are traded in the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. The bank was owned by the Histadrut until 1983, when it was nationalized following the Bank Stock Crisis. The bank was held by the Israeli government until 1996 when it was sold to a group of investors led by Ted Arison. During the period of government ownership the bank grew considerably to become the largest bank in Israel (a title previously held by Bank Leumi). As of 2006 the bank employs about 10,000 employees. It is controlled by Arison Holdings, which is owned by Shari Arison.
Bank Leumi Bank Leumi (Hebrew: בנק לאומי‎, lit. National Bank) is an Israeli bank. It was founded in London as the Anglo Palestine Company on February 27, 1902 by members of the Zionist movement to promote the industry, construction, agriculture, and infrastructure of Palestine.
Bank Leumi Le Israel Throughout its history, Leumi has remained steadfast in its adherence to Jewish values combined with professional bank management. This traditional commitment has enabled the Bank to evolve into a successful and profitable world-renowned financial institution, which continues to play an integral part in the building of the State and its economy.

Bank Otsar Ha-Hayal Bank Otsar Ha-Hayal (unofficially spelled Otsar HaHayal) is an Israeli bank. The name literally means Treasury of the Soldier Bank. Otsar HaHayal was founded in 1946 in the British Mandate of Palestine as a means for Jewish war veterans to store their assets. It was a bank only for soldiers until 1972, and had business partners within the IDF. In 1972, it became an official bank and opened up to the general public, although it still largely kept its association with military assets. It was purchased by Bank Hapoalim in 1977. By 1996, Otsar HaHayal completely transformed into a commercial public bank. On January 24, 2006, Bank Hapoalim's share of the bank, 66%, was sold for 703 million NIS, approximately 185% of Otsar Ha-Hayal's estimated worth, to the First International Bank of Israel.
