Stakeholder survey: NIB maintains high reputation

NIB has received results of its latest survey that indicates the Bank’s high level of reputation among the key stakeholder groups. The results show that NIB’s overall reputation remains very high and clearly outperforms the average level of corporate reputation in the financial industry among the lending customers. Another key stakeholder group, investors, appreciate NIB’s highest credit rating. The electronic NIB Newsletter, bilateral contacts and the Bank’s website appear to be the most favoured ways how NIB’s stakeholders would like to receive information from the Bank.
