Bank of Georgia sets up Representative Office in London

JSC Bank of Georgia (LSE: BGEO) (the “Bank”), Georgia’s leading universal bank announced today that it has set up a UK subsidiary company, Bank of Georgia Representative Office UK Limited (“Rep Office”) in London. The primary objectives of the Rep Office will be the provision of information relating to deposit products offered by the Wealth Management Business Unit (“WM”) of the Bank, and the facilitation of communication with the existing investors of Bank of Georgia. The office will become operational from September 2010. Macca Ekizashvili, currently Head of Investor Relations (IR) of Bank of Georgia will become the head of the Rep Office, based in London. In her new capacity, Macca will start to report to Vasil Revishvili, Global Head of Wealth Management and will continue to report to the CEO on IR matters.

The opening of the Representative Office in London is in line with the Bank’s strategy of expanding the offering of wealth management deposit products internationally by establishing presence in developed markets. The Bank’s wealth management business, with over 1,400 clients, grew markedly over the past 18 months, as the number of international clients increased to 460 as of June 2010 and client funds attracted by WM reached GEL 235.7 million, an increase from GEL 114.9 million from the same period last year.

“It’s a pleasure to announce the opening of Bank of Georgia’s representative office in London. International WM is our key strategic direction and London, which is the home to Bank of Georgia GDRs and has a strong investor base, is a logical progress to build upon the achievements in attracting deposits from international clients through our wealth management operations abroad.

I have strong confidence in Vasil, who prior to joining the Bank in 2008 worked at Pictet Asset Management in London and Geneva, to continue to lead out of Georgia our wealth management development efforts together with Macca, who will relocate to London as of beginning of September 2010. I am also pleased to note that with this appointment we are bringing IR closer to our investor base”, noted Irakli Gilauri, Chief Executive Officer.
