HSBC bank opens branch in Bratislava

THE LONDON-based bank, HSBC, opened its first branch in Bratislava June 16. The bank will provide corporate and institutional banking products to local and foreign clients as well as those planning to invest in Slovakia, the SITA news agency wrote.

The new Bratislava branch director is Karel Bureš who used to work as the head of the treasury section at HSBC in Prague.

"HSBC has monitored the development in Slovakia for a longer time now - especially its amazing economic growth after the country entered the EU in May last year. We are glad to be opening our Bratislava branch in this time of major growth of the Slovak economy," Bureš said June 14.
