East West United Bank
The East West United Bank was founded in 1974, after a meeting of the ministers of the Soviet Union and Luxembourg which resulted in the establishing of a Soviet bank in Luxembourg. Luxembourg as a financial center was growing rapidly, and the Soviet Union sought to expand its banking presence in Europe. The East West United Bank was one of the first foreign banks in Luxembourg to promote trade relations between the Soviet Union and the Benelux countries.
