“Being one of the top three regional banks in Russia is a big responsibility, not only to our customers, partners, employees and shareholders, but also to society,” says Lidia Simonova, Chairman of Center-invest Bank’s Executive Board. “While we used to talk about how a regional bank manages regional risks effectively, today, we need to be globally competitive: at the forefront of trends and constantly ready to meet new challenges. The bank’s sustainable development and economic efficiency give us an opportunity to implement socially significant initiatives in financial education, sport, culture and art in the regions where we operate. Our branch network allows us to replicate our unique banking products and solutions, to improve the quality of life in these regions, and to make it more comfortable and more environmentally friendly.”

Center-invest Bank operates in six Russian regions. We provide finance for new entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, and SMEs, and we support female entrepreneurship. We offer retail loan programmes and we actively participate in government-subsidised loan programmes. We invest in energy efficiency projects, and we help our customers to become responsible investors. Center-invest Bank accounts for over 40% of the deposits and loans of all the regional banks in southern Russia.

According to The Banker magazine, Center-invest Bank was one of Russia’s top 15 banks in 2020, while Forbes ranked us 55th in its rating of the top 100 most reliable financial institutions in Russia.
