The IBA has been operating since 1992. The bank has been at the stage of recovery since July 2015, which is related to preparations for privatization of its state-owned shares. To restore the bank's financial position, its troubled assets moved to the non-bank credit organization Aqrarkredit. In exchange for troubled assets, the non-bank organization provides IBA with liquid funds. Restructuring of the IBA's foreign obligations has already been completed.
The government owns 95.2 percent of the bank's shares.
