Dmitry Orlov, Chairman of the Management Board was upbeat about the results noting the competitive impact of the state backed banks on the entire banking sector.
“Over 2010 banks have been recovering their business after the crisis. Generally banking system managed to address these challenges, though recovery rates might have been better. Competition landscape has changed significantly — pressure from state-owned banks was felt throughout the whole year, private banks had to operate on low margins. Despite different weight category we successfully navigated through competitive pressure and even expanded our share on core markets.”
