Center-invest Bank Among Russia’s Highest Profile Banks

Center-invest Bank ranks 24th in the Media Rating of Russian Banks produced by the Brobank.ru service. The rating is based on the frequency of mentions of the company in the information field, and the frequency of searches using Yandex and Google, in the first half of 2020.

There was extensive media coverage of the following: the speech by Dr Vysokov, Chairman of Center-invest Bank’s Board of Directors, at the B20 Summit in Saudi Arabia; the inclusion of the bank’s COVID-19 response as an example of best practice among signatories to the Principles of Responsible Banking of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI); the bank’s participation in a roundtable on responsible business and ESG principles held by the Association of Russian Banks and IFC (World Bank Group); and also the news that Center-invest Bank had joined the Faster Payments System, which allows money transfers between customers of different banks using mobile phone numbers.

Another very notable event in the information field was Center-invest Bank’s decision to offer a preferential rate of 2.75% per annum under the government’s Rural Mortgage programme. The news that the bank was reducing its rate under a government-subsidised mortgage programme to 6% per annum, and the launch of its unique business transformation loan product to help small businesses thrive in the new distance economy, made Center-invest Bank a popular search on Yandex and Google.

Center-invest Bank is continually enhancing and expanding its services for retail and business customers, upholding its reputation as an effective and reliable institution. It has a balanced communications strategy, using various channels to interact with stakeholders.
