Three new investors have joined shareholder list, with the aim to develop and grow the Bank in its domestic market, but also in the European Union and global marketplace.
Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Bin Mohammed al Nahyan from the United Arab Emirates was one of three investors who invested in Bank’s capital in November 2021 and since then actively studied the Bank as well as banking role and opportunities in the changing world.
“Latvia, as EU and NATO member state, is right place from which to develop a strong, independent banking market player further into Europe and the world. My experience as shareholder since November 2021, together with experience in global business and finance show that with right amount of capital and strong leadership on all necessary levels, Baltic International Bank SE can become a stronger, larger and successful player in European banking space”, says Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Bin Mohammed al Nahyan.
