investors and partners,
Year 2018 for the Russian economy was characterized by moderate economic growth and the preservation of positive processes in the industry. During the year, the banking sector continued its growth, while maintaining stability, as evidenced by the revival of lending, especially retail.
A distinctive feature of the past year was the active implementation at the federal level of a number of projects that led or will lead in the very near future to a significant transformation of the banking industry.
For the first time in many years, we feel that active and persistent actions of the regulator create opportunities for strong private banks, primarily due to the introduction of a fast payment system, remote customer identification, the Marketplace system, etc.
