March 02, 2020, Almaty. – Jýsan Bank has successfully completed a third-party Asset Quality Review (AQR) initiated by the National Bank of the RoK.
The Kazakhstan's largest banks are subject such Asset Quality Review for the first time. It is based on the best European practices aimed to verify steadiness of the second-tier banks and financial system on the whole.

Considering our previous experience, we have revised all the procedures and policies, which retain a conservative approach to lending. Our clients can be entirely confident in the reliability and efficiency of the Bank."
