"The great interest in the first series of Coop Pank's bond program confirms investors' trust and confidence in the bank's growth plans. The high activity of retail investors in subscribing to bank bonds is particularly gratifying. We decided to give preference to today's customers and shareholders of the bank, to whom we distributed two thirds of the total volume of bonds. Offering the opportunity to be the owner of the bank itself or from now on also a bond investor, we want to give customers an additional argument to prefer the domestic Coop Pank when choosing the bank,” commented Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank.
