In Luxemburgish Spuerkeess, in French Banque et Caisse d'Épargne de l'État (abbreviated short BCEE), is a Luxembourgish bank, established and owned by the Luxembourgish government. Founded in 1856 as a savings bank, its competences were expanded over time, culminating in its transformation by Grand Ducal decree into a full-service bank on 25 October 1944. Nowadays, it provides all the functions of a commercial bank, including retail banking and private banking. In terms of total assets BCEE is the third-largest bank in Luxembourg and the largest bank with domestic capital.[2]
