PJSC Ukrposhta (Kyiv) is interested in strategic partnership with a small bank without a problem loan portfolio, acting director general of Ukrposhta Ihor Smiliansky has said.
"According to our criteria, this should be a small bank, without a problematic loan portfolio. We are not interested in a large network of branches - we already have it," he told journalists during a meeting in Kyiv, adding that negotiations with the banks are already underway.
According to Smiliansky, Ukrposhta is interested in the launch of providing banking services, while considering options for obtaining the necessary license, as well as buying an existing bank or signing a strategic partnership agreement with such a bank.
According to him, five or seven banks correspond to the Ukrposhta criteria in the Ukrainian market.
As reported, the NBU opposes the provision by Ukrposhta of banking services without an appropriate license.
