Financial shark loses a partner

PETER Ratkovský, one of three cofounders of Slávia Capital, the so-called Slovak financial shark, has left the company to found his own firm, the Slovak daily SME wrote.

Slávia Capital has operated as a financial and privatisation advisor to state power plants and the railway company, and was interested in buying Banka Slovakia. Sláva Capital was believed to be close to some politicians, especially former Economy Minister Ľudovít Černák, who resigned following accusations of corruption.

Following Ratkovský’s departure, Slávia Capital wants to be active in private banking and to advise strategic investors entering Slovak companies.
