The National Bank of Ukraine (NBU) in 2017 divided banks into three groups – state-run banks, banks of foreign bank groups and banks with private capital, the NBU has reported on its website.
According to NBU Board decision No. 76-sh dated February 10, the state-run banks group includes banks where the state directly or indirectly owns 75% of the charter capital – PrivatBank, Ukreximbank, Oschadbank, Ukgasbank, Ukrainian Bank for Reconstruction and Development (UBRD) and Clearing Center.
The press service of the NBU said that UBRD was still in this group, as China’s Bohai Commodity Exchange Co. Ltd. (BOCE) had not yet filed the required package of documents to register the change of the owner.
The group of banks of foreign bank groups includes 25 banks and the group of banks with private capital has 63 banks.
The NBU will use this distribution into groups to present the results of the Ukrainian banking operation and not for supervision purposes.
The NBU in 2016 divided banks into groups of banks with state-owned stakes, banks of foreign bank groups and two groups in terms of assets share of the banking system – over 0.5% and less than 0.5%. (Interfax/Business World Magazine)
