Project Description

The EBRD is considering a senior loan to Mongolia's Khan Bank as part of a senior/subordinated A/B syndicated facility being arranged by the Netherlands Development Company (FMO). The strong business expansion of the Mongolian economy and its corporate sector require an additional source of medium to longer term funding which will be provided by the proposed debt package.

Transition Impact

Transition impact of the project will arise from facilitating market expansion of the local corporate sector including in the regions by improving their access to longer term finance. The project will support Khan Bank's FX lending procedures for stress testing and disclosure of risks associated with such loans, thus demonstrating higher standards of business conduct to other banks. The structure used for this transaction - a parallel and syndicated A/B loan - is new to the banking sector in the country and it will provide a demonstration of new ways to finance activities in this sector.
