The National Bank of Ukraine concludes “cleaning” of the banking system as the first stage of the reform, moving to the next “reset” stage. But was a massive liquidation of banks and nationalization of Privatbank really necessary? Is there a state-owned bank monopoly and how does it affect the banking system? What are the next steps for privatizing the state-owned banks? What can customers expect from the Ukrainian banking system of the future? How will it be different for clients and shareholders and what are the new opportunities it will open? These and other questions together with distinguished speakers we will answer during the 2nd Straight Talk event.

Moderator: Olexiy Soshenko, the managing partner and Head of the Banking and Finance practice of Redcliffe Partners. He specialises in international finance and capital markets transactions.
