Wachovia Celebrates 10 Years Of Services In Russia


CHARLOTTE, N.C.—This month, Wachovia Corp. celebrates its 10th year of providing top-ranked correspondent banking and trade services to financial institutions in Russia.

“We’re proud of our history and growth in this important part of the world, where over the years Wachovia has developed close correspondent banking relationships with more than 70 financial institutions throughout Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS),” said Larissa Ostrovsky, director and country manager for Russia and the CIS. Wachovia demonstrated its deepening commitment to this market with the opening of its Moscow Representative Office three years ago.

Wachovia focuses on providing global correspondent banking solutions to financial institutions that can fully benefit from the company’s comprehensive array of payment, trade, credit, liquidity and structured finance services.

“Our goal is to be the bank of choice for financial institutions requiring quality solutions for their international business, and ultimately, to be the primary international partner for our Russian customers,” said Elizaveta Yerchenko, vice president and relationship manager. “One key to our growth in this region is our ability to focus on building balanced relationships with customers who require an orchestrated blend of both credit and non-credit services.”

“The combination of our products, combined with our commitment to providing stellar customer service, has differentiated us in the market,” said Dilek Mutus, managing director and area head for Emerging Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
