A Reliable Partner
Specializing in shipping, an international by nature industry, the Bank's risk exposure is largely mitigated from the country’s sovereign risk.
The Bank has minimal delinquent loans and boasts on the quality of its USD denominated loan portfolio, governed by English law and secured by ocean going vessels.
ABBank is the only Greek Bank that has consistently maintained its profitability throughout the Greek economic crisis and the current global shipping crisis.
Contrary to the majority of Greek banks, which operate under the strict monitoring of HFSF, Troika, SSM and DG Comp with restricted decision – making capability, ABBank remains fully independent and private with swift local decision making processes.
Not in need to participate in the Greek banking sector’s recapitalization and restructuring process, the Bank maintains an exemplary Capital Adequacy Ratio, significantly above the minimum Basel III requirement.
