On revocation of banking licence from credit institution Anelik RU and appointment of provisional administration

By its Order No. OD-2244, dated 9 August 2017, the Bank of Russia revoked the banking licence of the Moscow-based credit institution Commercial Bank Anelik RU (limited liability company), or CB Anelik RU LLC (Registration No. 3443) from 9 August 2017. According to the financial statements, as of 1 July 2017, the credit institution ranked 524th by assets in the Russian banking system.

The Bank was a settlement centre of one of the payment systems; however, the Bank of Russia did not categorise it as an important credit institution in the payment services market.

It was revealed that CB Anelik RU repeatedly violated law on countering the legalisation (laundering) of criminally obtained incomes and the financing of terrorism, including, but not limited to, the complete and reliable notification of the authorised body about operations subject to obligatory control. Starting from late 2016, the bank was involved in dubious transactions associated with overseas money transfers and cashing out, as well as transit operations.

The management and owners of CB Anelik RU have failed to take appropriate measures to prevent the credit institution from becoming involved in dubious operations of its clients. Under the circumstances, the Bank of Russia took the decision to withdraw CB Anelik RU from the banking services market.

The Bank of Russia took such an extreme measure — revocation of the banking licence — because of the credit institution’s failure to comply with federal banking laws and Bank of Russia regulations, repeated violations within a year of Bank of Russia requirements stipulated by Articles 6 and 7 (excluding Clause 3 of Article 7) of the Federal Law ’On Countering the Legalisation (Laundering) of Criminally Obtained Incomes and the Financing of Terrorism’ as well as Bank of Russia regulations issued in accordance with the said law and application of the measures stipulated by the Federal Law ’On the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (Bank of Russia)’, taking into account
