Krasnodar, 13 March. Vadim Podobedov, Corporate Business Director of Raiffeisenbank’s Southern branch:
“Over the past ten years, the structure of foreign companies that come to Russia, has changed a little. Big holdings have become well-established in the market; now it is small and midsize businesses that are trying to enter it. We also plan to focus on encouraging such international companies to become our clients.
“It is various governmental preferences, like subsidising, that may encourage international businesses to come to this or that region. What is here at issue is not merely a financial support, but also simplification of the processes.
“Krasnodar province has a good representation of European companies, mainly from Austria, France, and Germany. Of lately, Asian companies have become more active. This is a national, not just Kuban, trend. “On the whole, there is no inflow of new companies en masse, which is why the banks are re-dividing their client base. A company prefers to choose the bank good both in its services and cooperation convenience. As for Raifeissenbank, we work with physical persons, small, midsize and big companies, and international corporations - and this is our advantage: we can offer both high-quality and timely financial business solutions as well as bank products for the employees of our clients.”
