Attica Bank chairman heading for Paris, New York in search of new investors

Attica Bank board chairman Panagiotis Roumeliotis is due to travel to Paris on Thursday, accompanied by a delegation of bank executives, in order to discuss finding potential investors to participate in the bank’s planned share capital increase with financial institutions and the bank’s consultant, Rothschild.

Roumeliotis will then travel to New York for meetings with U.S. institutional investors and other financial organisations to brief them about the bank’s plans. While in New York, he will have the opportunity to meet with International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank staff on the sidelines of the annual IMF meeting, as well as representatives of international organisations, in a bid to expand Attica Bank’s collaboration with other financial and credit institutions.
