The Bank continued in its conservative strategy put into effect in the year 2009, in order to overcome the adverse
effects of the global financial crisis which erupted in the last quarter of the year 2008, hitting several economic
sectors, in particular the real estate.
The turbulent times of 2008 continued in 2009 as the aftershock of the global financial crisis. As such,
"Survival of the Fittest" syndrome marked the shape of things to come. As expected, only Institutions

with the winds of change and achieved profits in spite of all odds.
