“You won’t tell my mum, will you?”– these were the closing words of a TV commercial of Parex Bank, the only financial institution in the offshore industry which I had known before I went into this business myself in the very early 1990s. What can I say about this bank which is not yet known? Shall I say that Parex Bank was the first private bank in the post-Soviet territory, or that it was the first Baltic bank to offer in the Russian market financial services of certain kind and then was the first one to stop this practice? Or shall I say that the substances Due Diligence and Parex Bank were of fundamentally different origin, but that now, after the admission of Latvia to the EU, even most demanding compliance officers of world’s leading banks can envy the bank’s stringent Know Your Client policy? Or shall I say that in 2007 Parex Bank registered its subsidiary bank in Switzerland, and in 2008 declared its nationalization? Did you know all that? Then we look forward to the news from Parex Bank itself. And such news will follow, I am sure.
You may ask, ‘How is it all related to AP Anlage & Privatbank?’ It is a direct – 100 per cent –relation. But will it last?
Following the restructuring of Parex Bank in 2010 and establishment of Citadele Banka, whose shareholders are the State of Latvia and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), AP Anlage & Privatbank AG has now become the 100% subsidiary of Citadele Banka.
