Annual Meeting of the General Assembly of Shareholders of International Asset Bank AD

On March 28, 2019, a regular annual meeting of the General Assembly of Shareholders of International Asset Bank AD took place and several important decisions were taken:

  • adoption of the annual activity report and approval of the audited financial statements;
  • transferring all the profit for the previous year in the Reserve Fund as support for the further development of the institution.

 

 

Despite the dynamic economic environment and the many challenges, International Asset Bank closed successfully year 2018, with a positive financial result of BGN 11,345,000 and the profit after taxes for the period amounted to BGN 10,369,000. The total balance sheet assets managed by the financial institution at the end of the previous year reached BGN 1 438 893 thousand, which consistently confirms the upward trend from previous years and represents an increase of nearly 5% compared to the same period in 2017. Following its strategy for a consistent, but continued growth, the Bank has attracted new customers, widened its product portfolio, improved its product and services financial conditions for priority customer segments and strengthened its market positions. Asset growth alone is an indicator of retained confidence, progress in business development and capacity for future development. The growth of the gross loan portfolio of International Asset Bank AD, formed by clients other than credit institutions, amounting to 9.68%, is also a proof of successful business model. As regards the portfolio structure, the Bank's exposure to the corporate sector, in particular small and medium-sized enterprises, is the most significant, with the institution following its traditions throughout the year and continuing to serve this segment successfully. In addition, in the context of strong competition, International Asset Bank managed to increase the volume of loans granted to enterprises as well as to non-bank financial institutions and to individuals.
