Comments by the First Deputy Chairman of the Board, CEO, Pavel Filimonenok:

“2020 not only posed new challenges for us, but also unlocked new prospects, ergo, new strategic goals. Over the following three years we will focus on the areas of business where the Bank holds key competitive advantages and also sees the growth potential – including SME business, large corporate business in St. Petersburg and in Moscow, as well as in the new regions, and, of course, retail digital business”.
