On September 27, the bank’s shareholders decided to terminate the company’s investment services. Earlier, on September 14, the management was commissioned to prepare the official documents needed for the transformation. ÁÉB is owned by Russian Businessman Megdet Rahimkulov and his family, the direct owners are Kafijat Kft (74.48%) and Firthlion Ltd (25.52%). (Gazdasági Rádió, Napi Gazdaság)
