Banking

The number of banks with valid licenses is 77 (of which 37 are with foreign capital, including 23 with 100% foreign capital).

In 2018 the working banks in Ukraine received $ 783 million net profit, and for the first five months of 2019 – $ 870 million. The growth in profitability of Ukrainian banks was affected by the growth in interest income, commission income, as well as revaluation of asset purchase and sale transactions.

On May 27, 2019, the Clearstream international central securities depository, a member of the Deutsche Börse Group, connected the Ukrainian market to its network through an account opened with the National Bank Depository and made Ukrainian government securities available in its settlement system. Settlements through the Clearstream system guarantee their compliance with international standards and reduce the operational costs of investors for such operations.

Due to the instability and unprofitability of the Ukrainian banking market from 2014 to 2018, the most reliable banks retained liquidity (many still retain the need for additional capital), therefore, we invite foreign banking groups to enter the banking system of Ukraine through the purchase and further development of banking institutions.
