The news that the banker and owner of the alcohol holding Roust Rustam Tariko began to produce Scotch whiskey was puzzled in business circles. In the near future, Tariko may lose both the bank and Roust. A number of sources with which the correspondent of The Moscow Post spoke, believe that the banker can withdraw money from the "Russian Standard" in the alcohol business, and from there to offshore.
Rustam Tariko, of course, is far more imaginary. Under the guise of a new business, he can withdraw money from the bank so that it does not remain for investors. During this year, the bank lost 20 billion rubles. their assets. Doesn't want Tariko to explain where they could go?
In the summer, Lenta wrote that Tariko could lend 19 billion rubles to related companies. It could just be about the companies included in the alcohol holding Roust. In a strange way, the figure almost coincides with the amount by which banking assets decreased.
In October 2017, Russian Standard Rustam Tariko defaulted on securities for $ 545 million. Collateral for this issue of securities was 49% of the shares of Russian Standard Bank. The banker was counting on restructuring the issue, however, investors gathered a group of 25% and blocked this opportunity.
Realizing that he was ahead of him, Rustam Tariko began offering investors various options for resolving the situation - one funnier than the other. A person in their right mind and sober memory would never go to them. Therefore, investors began to creep into doubt about the adequacy of decisions made by Rustam Tariko.
The banker was already in a similar situation in 2015, but then managed to negotiate with investors, paying them only 18%. This time he offered as much as 25%, but did not find understanding among bondholders. No one was going to endure financial mockery of himself.
To “squeeze” Tariko, investors turned to investment company A1, which is known for helping to find debts around the world. Now she is “hunting” for the assets of the runaway ex-head of Vneshprombank Georgy Bedzhamov. The “hunting season” for Tariko is probably already open. And the banker as soon as he can tries to drag out time to withdraw more money from the bank?
Investors should pay attention not only to a decrease in bank assets. Rustam Tariko lost almost 11 billion rubles this year on deposits from individuals. Funds of enterprises and organizations decreased by 16.5 billion rubles. (34.12%). More than a third of legal clients escaped from the bank? Apparently, there is already no trust in Rustamu Tariko.
From the close circle of Rustam Tariko, it became known that due to the possibility of losing the “Russian Standard”, the banker may be out of his mind. And commit rash acts. Which, according to experts, in the absence of funds in the Roust holding is the production of whiskey.
Rumor has it that among investors who see that the bank’s assets are openly squandered, doubts arose about the adequacy of Rustam Tariko. Bond holders can appeal to the High Court of London and demand the arrest of not only Russian Standard shares, but Roust alcohol holding. As a result of the proceedings, Rustam Tariko may lose both of his assets.
