"Analyzing the anticipated demand, both from our current customers,  and possibly new ones, we came to the conclusion that at the moment  the higher interest is manifested specifically to dollar bonds.  However, we do not exclude that in 2018, Anelik Bank will issue one  more AMD tranche of bonds," R. Melikyan said, responding to the  question of ArmInfo.

Head of the Program and Investment Development Department of the Bank  Anelik Karen Nalbandyan added that examining the experience of the  previous four tranches, one can speak about the increased interest of  clients to the bonds of the bank, which are now actively developing  tools on the market. At the same time, he stressed that, in  comparison with other countries, the Armenian bond market has certain  advantages. "Being a market, but risky tool of the bank, bonds in  Armenia, like deposits, are guaranteed by the state (Deposit  Guarantee Fund), but in comparison with deposits are more profitable  and flexible tool," he stressed.
