BlueOrange (ex Baltikums Bank) was founded in 2001 by BBG AS holding owned by four Latvian entrepreneurs Alexander Peshkov, Sergey Peshkov, Andrey Kochetkov and Oleg Chepulsky. By that time, they had worked together in international business, trade and logistics for more than 10 years, so the bank was initially established by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Being businesspersons themselves, they could understand needs of other businessmen like no one else. Gradually the bank started providing solutions for private customers as well.
On September 11, 2017, Baltikums Bank AS changed its legal name to BlueOrange Bank
