"I believe that 2019 was a very important year for ARARATBANK in terms of development. Despite the tough competition in the financial and banking sector, ARARATBANK managed to accomplish the objectives set out in the bank's strategy during the reporting period. It is noteworthy that we expanded lending at the expense of retail, consumer lending, and highlighting the idea of a healthy and diversified loan portfolio, in 2019 we kept on pursuing a conservative and cautious credit policy and again stood out with а high-quality loan portfolio in the Armenian banking sector,” said Mher Ananyan, Chairman of the Executive Board of ARARATBANK OJSC.
