AgriBank plc, a British owned bank, is currently setting up business in Malta and will soon open its head office at SkyParks Business Centre. The Bank, which only just obtained a credit institution licence from the Malta Financial Services Authority at the end of October, 2012, has made its first charitable donation. Two senior bank officials, Roderick Psaila, Chief Executive Officer, and Paul Grech, Chief Financial Officer, visited id-Dar tal-Providenza in Siggiewi on 1 January to present a cheque for €1,000 to support the home’s invaluable work among people with special needs in Malta.
“It gives me great satisfaction to make this charitable donation. We thank the organisers of the activity, who gave us the opportunity to help others, an opportunity that we could not let pass by, despite the fact that we are still not operative. We expect to be fully operative next month and will be focusing primarily on providing asset financing to rural businesses, such as farmers, village communities and ‘green’ entrepreneurs, and offering the opportunity to people in Malta and the UK to invest in AgriBank by subscribing to the investment products the Bank will issue,” Mr Psaila said.
