Strategic Focus

Strategic Focus

iib's business strategy is predicated around two principal drivers. Namely, the acquisition of retail/commercial banking operations in our geographic area of focus, and the integration of these assets around a common operating platform and a common value set.

The exit of larger financial institutions from our target markets as a part of their own rationalization and de-risking process leaves material opportunities to selectively build credit, transactional and wealth management services.

Specifically, the aim is to focus on three discrete business lines:

Strong local deposit bases, building strong and expandable local credit franchises while integrating these businesses around a common operating platform.

The provision of transactional banking services to smaller banks and corporates in the area of the trade finance, payments, correspondent banking, liquidity management, custody and treasury services.

Using our geographic placement of banking operations to build regional banking franchises and offer wealth management services.
