On November 11, 2014, Codrin Matei, managing partner, Crosspoint Investment Banking & Real participated as a panelist at the ZIARUL FINANCIAR banking conference: “How to build again trust between banks and entrepreneurs?”.
“After the years of crisis, banks were mainly focused on rolling down the loans and delaying the moment of assumption of their real losses. Some banks got to a deal with their customers, while others preferred to sell the loans – but from a financial point of view this was not the best solution”, Crosspoint representative stated during the conference.
“The bridge needs to be re-built through transparency, both from the banks and from the entrepreneurs”, also stated Codrin Matei.
The conference was moderated by Sorin Pislaru, chief editor at ZIARUL FINANCIAR and other panelists included Lucian Croitoru, counselor of the National Bank of Romania Governor, Nawaf Salameh, president, Alexandrion Group, Aurel Besliu, shareholder – Cocor SA, Eugen Birsescu, financial director, Bulrom, Bogdan Neacsu, VP, corporate, Volksbank, Andrei Mocanu, general director, Kredyt Inkaso.
