The priority for international development is placed on enhancing business in the markets where the Group is operating. The key region for the Group is the CIS where we aim at strengthening market position, boosting retail business and increasing the efficiency of the network and business processes. In Europe, Asia and Africa the Group continues to focus on serving customers from Russia and the CIS thus contributing to international cooperation and  the CIS customers’ expansion on the international markets. That enables VTB Group to offer a unique range of products on global financial markets.

An important task is to support the growing business by building a stronger infrastructure. We are planning to significantly increase operational capability by streamlining automated business processes and integrating advanced IT platform and technologies across the Group.
Our aim is to improve the Group management system to achieve greater synergy across business lines and benefit from our geographical reach outside the Russian Federation.   

“Achieving these goals will enable the VTB Group to establish a business of a completely different scale and scope, which, in turn, will produce a positive impact on its market capitalization,” said Ekaterina Petelina, Member of VTB Bank Management Board.
