Who is our customer

Hamkorbank (founded in 1991, FMO client since 2012) is one of the two leading private commercial banks in Uzbekistan. Hamkorbank is a universal bank offering a wide spectrum of banking services including credit, deposit taking, cash and money transfer services, foreign exchange, letter of credits and leasing. Clientele comprises SMEs (53 percent), corporates (33 percent) and individuals (14 percent). The bank’s shareholding structure is dispersed over 1,941 shareholders, of which 61 percent are individuals. Main controlling shareholder is founder of the bank and Chairman of the Supervisory Board Mr Ibragimov holding 21 percent. Other key shareholders are IFC (15 percent since 2010) and FMO (15 percent since September 2014). The bank has around 2,000 employees and a country-wide branch network of 35 branches, and 160 outlets (mini-banks).

What is our funding objective?

The client has already benefitted a lot from its engagement with FMO as it managed to grow significantly over the last two years -in particular in the SME segment. Our USD funding would offer great new business opportunities for HamkorBank and would implicitly contribute considerably to the country’s SME sector development.

Why do we fund this investment?

FMO successfully established relations with Hamkorbank by providing a credit line and in September 2014 FMO entered as a 15 percent shareholder in in the bank . From the start, the relation with the bank is very good with strong commitment to closely cooperate. Since other opportunities in the Uzbek financial sector are scarce, it is our strategy to serve Hamkorbank to the best extent possible via debt, equity and other added value (e.g. capacity development, exchange of network, knowledge and experience).
