Yoma Bank
Yoma Bank Limited (Burmese: ရိုးမဘဏ်; Chinese: 祐瑪銀行; pinyin: Yòumǎ Yínháng) is one of Myanmar's (Burma) largest commercial banks. It was established by First Myanmar Investment Company (FMI) in August 1993, with its first branch in Mingala Taungnyunt Township in Yangon. Today, Yoma Bank has over 41 branches in 24 cities. Yoma Bank was among many privately owned banks affected in the 2003 banking crisis, during which consumer confidence dropped after rumours spread throughout the country about the security of savings accounts.[citation needed] Like most all other privately owned banks in the country, the bank was solvent and maintained a sound loan to equity ratio, but was unable to withstand the abrupt and massive withdrawal of deposits and had to resort to the Central Bank's support.[citation needed] Its operations were subsequently curtailed and was allowed to remain open with limited services.[citation needed] During the 2003 financial crisis, Yoma Bank was brought undone largely through poor banking practices and lax lending controls, although it did not figure in the money-laundering practices that other local banks were accused of. The Central Bank of Myanmar (CBM) alleged that Yoma Bank had violated the country's 1990 Financial Institutions of Myanmar Law (FIML), although never specifying the specific breaches.
Yoma Bank's former chairman Serge Pun (also known as Thein Wai) is now chairman and CEO of Yoma Strategic Holdings, a Singapore listed public company whose investments include both in Myanmar and China. Former Myanmar Central Bank Governor, U Kyi Aye, was the Special Advisor to former chairman Serge Pun from 2000 to 2006, and as non-executive director of Yoma Strategic Holdings since 2006.
In 2008, the American Embassy in Rangoon recommended both YOMA Strategic and FMI to be placed under the sanctions list. This was alongside 31 other companies that included Htoo Trading - owned by [Tay Za] - and Asia World - owned by [Steven Law]. http://wikileaks.org/cable/2008/11/08RANGOON896.html
Serge Pun seems to have cultivated one of the cleanest reputations in Myanmar to outside observers but within the country there have been widespread misgivings about this reputation. In a well known example of how he treats his business partners - the building of the Grand Mee Ya Hta Service Apartments - there was tales of non-payment and harassment
Currently in 2013, Serge Pun's Group of Companies have been bidding on most licenses that the government has put out to tender. In some cases, he has used his Singapore listed entity to joint venture and bid on the same license as his local company with another different foreign partner.
