Center-invest Bank recognised as offering the best banking services in Russia!

Center-invest Bank has won the banking services category Winner of the nationwide competition “The 100 Best Goods of Russia 2012” and it has been awarded a prestigious gold quality mark for excellence. The majority of the other 42 competition winners from the Don region are customers and partners of Center-invest Bank.

The award ceremony for the winners of the 2012 competition to find the 100 best goods of Russia was held in Rostov-on-Don on 28 November 2012 at the VertolExpo conference and exhibition centre.

Now in its 15th year, the competition is widely recognised and trusted by consumers as an unbiased source of information about the best companies and organisations for high- quality goods and services. The Russian just says services, but presumably I can add goods also.

In accordance with its mission statement, Center-invest Bank is committed to providing the local population and businesses in southern Russia with banking services on the basis of international standards and modern banking technologies. To this end, Center-invest Bank continually introduces and develops products and services for retail customers, SMEs and the agribusiness sector, and finances energy efficiency projects.

Center-invest Bank is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Set up by southern Russia’s first privatized enterprises, the bank has become known as a “reform laboratory” in the region. It has established successful partnerships with international financial institutions, and it is the only bank in southern Russia to have a Ba3 rating from Moody’s. This rating was affirmed by Moody’s earlier this year.

Center-invest Bank has always stood out for its innovative approach to business, with strategies that incorporate social responsibility and the application of best international practice and modern banking technologies to promote southern Russia’s economic development.

In Russia, this way of doing business is called ‘socially responsible’, while in international practice the term ’sustainable’ is used. Rather than prioritizing immediate profits, a sustainable business seeks to introduce new knowledge, technology and methods for the benefit of future generations.

Center-invest Bank’s success in the nationwide competition attests to the professionalism and commitment of its staff.
