Project Description

The proposed project envisages a broadening of the EBRD relationship with Rosbank with new term financing consisting of:

  • USD 30 million mortgage loan; and
     
  • USD 150 million syndicated loan under A/B structure, with EBRD finance of USD 50 million.

The project aims to assist the bank in developing its business in favour of (i) private sector small and medium sized enterprises (SME) operating in the Russian Federation and of (ii) retail customers with an offering of residential mortgage products. Through syndication, the project will also contribute in further diversification of the bank’s funding base.

Transition Impact

  • The proposed project will promote financial intermediation in Russia by using the broad regional network of Rosbank/OVK to reach Russian SME and retail customers with longer tenor funding, which is essential for capital financing and mortgages.
     
  • The proposed project is expected to foster competition in the banking sector by giving borrowers in different regions across Russia greater choice in accessing banking products which best fit their needs.
     
  • Through benchmarks for high standards of corporate governance, business practices and financial discipline, the project will further contribute to institutional building of the bank.
     
  • EBRD’s involvement in the syndicated loan transaction will contribute to broadening the range of financing partners and lengthening the maturities of funding provided by commercial banks.

The Client

EBRD Finance

Term Loan of USD 80 million (EUR 67 million).

Project Cost

USD 180 million (EUR 150 million).

Environmental Impact

Text of the PIP

Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM)

If efforts to address environmental, social or public disclosure concerns with the Client or the Bank are unsuccessful (e.g. through the Client’s Project-level grievance mechanism or through direct engagement with Bank management), individuals and organisations may seek to address their concerns through the EBRD’s Independent Project Accountability Mechanism (IPAM).

IPAM independently reviews Project issues that are believed to have caused (or to be likely to cause) harm. The purpose of the Mechanism is: to support dialogue between Project stakeholders to resolve environmental, social and public disclosure issues; to determine whether the Bank has complied with its Environmental and Social Policy or Project-specific provisions of its Access to Information Policy; and where applicable, to address any existing non-compliance with these policies, while preventing future non-compliance by the Bank.

Please visit the Independent Project Accountability Mechanism webpage to find out how to submit a Request for review through our confidential online form, by email, mail or telephone. IPAM is available to discuss your concerns and answer any questions you may have about the submission or handling of Requests, which follow the Project Accountability Policy and Guidance. Requestors’ identities may be kept confidential, upon request.
