There are even 24 banks from the first one hundred Swiss banks, which faced with the decrease of the loan portfolio. Generally, these are the banks, specialized in retail. We are optimizing the structure of assets, keeping the credit financing in priority. Assetsareincreasingslowerthantheloanportfolio.
