Baku, Fineko/abc.az. The country’s largest bank, the International Bank of Azerbaijan (IBA), has not refused expansion in the Persian Gulf states’ markets, despite the global financial crisis.
According to IBA CEO Jakhangir Hajiyev, process of opening of the subsidiary bank continues in Qatar.
“We have already had an office and acquisition of license for the subsidiary bank remains on the agenda. Bureaucratic issues are being resolved now, although, the economic crisis has delayed somewhat this process,” J. Hajiyev said.
In 2009, after negotiations in the Central Bank of Azerbaijan (CBA) and the Qatar Financial Centre (KFC), IBA received consent for opening of its subsidiary bank in Qatar with maximum permit for operations that supposes payment of its charter capital up to $10 million. Then IBA carried out market assessment and worked out a business plan with assistance of leading consulting companies of the world.
