“This is the only syndicated loan raised by Russian banks in 2015,” said Managing Director, Head of International Business of Otkritie FC Bank Yuri Lekarev.

“The lenders are banks from Europe, the USA, and Asia, which demonstrates the high level of financial confidence that investors from these regions continue to have in Otkritie FC Bank. Importantly, the funds have been raised on the same terms and conditions as in autumn 2014, despite the deteriorated macroeconomic environment.”

The lenders are UniCredit (acting also as the coordinating bank), AKA Ausfuhrkredit-Gesellschaft mbH, Citi, Commerzbank Aktiengesellschaft, Filiale Luxemburg, Credit Suisse, Harbin Bank, ING Bank, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited, Raiffeisen Bank International AG, Societe Generale Group.
