We have been working together with VMB Partners over the last 10 years to achieve important goals of Alba Iulia, like: issuing bonds, elaborating the development strategy of the city, and getting a credit rating from an international rating agency, the latter being a premiere in Romania. They are always aware of legislative changes, provided innovative solutions in order to fit our needs and are always interested in creating new products for local development. VMB Partners contributed significantly to the city development in many aspects.

Nicolae Moldovan

City Manager, Municipiul Alba Iulia

It is very difficult for a local government to have all necessary information in order to make the best decision when it comes to fund and/or borrow money. Therefore, City of Zalău collaborated with VMB Partners for advising us throughout the entire financing procedure, starting from negotiating with bank representatives in order to obtain lowest possible interest rates, to loan authorization by the Ministry of Finance. VMB Partners treated our requests with responsibility and professionalism, proving each time it is a true PARTNER.

Mariana Cuibus

Executive Director, City of Zalău

VMB Partners are well documented and always keep us updated with any new relevant information. They have been proving professionalism and involvement in solving problems that we encountered in the process of financing local infrastructure.
