Thus, a comfortable reserve of capital adequacy enables the Bank to repay a more expensive loan of 2014, and simultaneously to implement strategic plans to increase loan portfolio.

"As a quality Issuer, Alfa Bank has extracted the maximum benefit from favorable market conditions in the debt market by the end of 2019. Thanks to the active interest of investors from USA, Europe, UK and Switzerland, we have attracted new subordinated loan with a comfortable margin — a total of $850 million at 5,95%. Given the significant difference in the rate of early repayment of the 2014 release will reduce the cost of capital", — said the chief financial officer, Deputy Chairman of the management Board of Alfa-Bank Alexey Chuhlov.
