Customers can now find the necessary information distributed by specific headings. The following media outlets were used to collect press signals: newspapers "Golos Armenii", "Respublika Armenia", "New Time", "Business Express", "Hayastani Hanrapetutyun", "AZG", "Aravot", "Haykakan Zhamanak" "Hayots Ashkharh", "Iravunk," "168 Zham", "Capital", "Sobesednik Armenii", "Zhohovurd", "Zhamanak" and news agencies Panarmenian, ARKA, Newsarmenia, Armbanks, Banks, Banker, Arminfo, Panorama, Lragir.

The press rating is based on banking activity facts and not on financial and economic indicators, reported in the media. As a result, the higher the degree of awareness about the bank, the better its communication policy. In drawing up the press rating no advertising information is investigated or analysed. –0—
