The boards of directors of Zenit and Ak Bars banks are going to discuss the strategy for merger of these two credit organizations at the next board meeting, the Zenit press service reported. According to Robert Musin, the chairman of Zenit and Ak Bars boards, this merger will have no analogues in the history of the Russian banking system. "We kept in mind this promising opportunity for a long time and we realize that the merger of Zenit and Ak Bars will be an unprecedented event," he was quoted as saying.
