Temirbank is ready to merge with Alliance Bank and is waiting for the shareholders’ decision, KazTAG reports citing chairman of Temirbank Murat Baissynov.

“This is for shareholders to decide, as it is related to development strategy. If the decision is made, we are ready to merge. But the decision is theirs to make,” Baissynov said.

Earlier deputy chairman of Samruk-Kazyna National Welfare Fund Yelena Bakhmutova said that the Fund was considering different ways to increase effectiveness of the two nationalized commercial banks - Alliance Bank and Temirbank.
