GSL reference about the bank

Being professional intermediaries, we are limited in giving public opinion about some financial institutions. Please contact us directly to obtain more detailed feedback.

Primary requirements:
- the bank opens savings (investment) accounts;
- an account can be opened in Moscow by meeting with a bank representative (often visits Moscow);
- requirements for minimum balances: from EUR 1,000,000;
- the term for opening an account - case by case (check with the consultant).

This bank is a classic example of a low-profile bank. It does not seek to advertise itself and, granting the bank’s wish, we do not mention its name in the bank’s profile. The name of the bank will be disclosed to you at a personal meeting.
