Economic & Financial Services
When it comes to making investment choices, AIB BANK is right beside you. The unit AIB Economic and Financial Services (AIB EFS) offers advisory services to help its clients get a realistic view of their opportunities. Because EFS is situated in a bank, the department can help identify the financial feasibility of a project in its early stages. In some cases an EFS client might be applicable to the financial resources of the AIB BANK N.V.
The EFS services include:
