The divestment of the investments, which were managed by Norwest Equity Partners and Norwest Mezzanine Partners, will allow the bank to streamline its operations and enhance its focus on its key areas of expertise.

The move is part of a trend among financial institutions to increase efficiency and reduce their holdings in non-critical areas amid economic uncertainty caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
