Banks are interested in retail

Russian banks are increasingly paying attention to the retail segment, where annual business growth is about 20%. Stable growth in lending to retailers has been observed for two consecutive years, reports RBC daily.

This year alone, Uralsib Bank issued loans to retail companies in the amount of over RUB 10 billion. Most of the borrowers are large federal networks. According to the executive director of the corporate business of Uralsib bank Alexander Afonin, from the beginning of the year to October the increase in the volume of the retail loan portfolio amounted to 45%.

Therefore, there is a tough competition for such clients between banks ”.

According to V. Andryushkin, retail trade networks are the most attractive clients for banks, because in addition to regular loans, they can also be offered other banking services, such as cash collection or acquiring.

Experts advise retailers in those banks with industry expertise to raise funds for investment projects and working capital. In such banks, the needs of customers are more understandable, which may affect credit conditions, writes RBC daily.
