“South Moravia is one of the fastest growing regions with a significant share of the industrial

office spaces. Our new premises are easily accessible by car and also provide convenient
parking facility at close quarters to the Bank,“ said Rajeev Chalisgaonkar, director of
Commercial Banking Group, a division that is providing financial services to companies that
generate annual turnover in excess of CZK 50 million.
