The greatest contributor to profit growth was greater interest income resulting from the growth of the loan portfolio.

Margus Rink, the chairman of the board of Coop Pank, said that the bank was steadily displaying rapid growth for the third year in a row. “Coop Pank continues to strengthen its position on the Estonian banking market. The factors behind our growth the ever-increasing brand recognition of the bank and the general trend for giving preference to domestic banks, which is becoming more and more popular with clients. We can also see companies becoming increasingly more interested because, as a local bank, ours can process their expansion plans and make financing decisions faster. What also draws the attention of business clients to us is the interest paid on the clients’ temporarily available funds,” Mr Rink noted.

At the end of May, Coop Pank’s Supervisory Board commissioned the Management Board to start preparations for the public listing of the bank’s shares. “The preparation for the public listing of our shares are under way as scheduled, and we are currently working to bring Coop Pank’s shares to Tallinn stock exchange before the end of the year. Still, the specific issue date could be affected by the global economy situation and how stock markets respond to it,” Mr Rink said.
