Corporate Lending

Sberbank accounts for one third of the total loan portfolio of Russian banks, which marks the Bank out as a key investor in the Russian economy. The Bank extended over RUB 5.5 trillion in loans to corporate borrowers in 2011, up 28% on the previous year. Our corporate loan portfolio expanded 35.0% year-on-year to RUB 6.6 trillion. Territorial banks across the country account for more than half of our corporate loan portfolio.

We offer our corporate loan products in all of Russia’s regions. Our market share varies by region depending on economic factors. As of 31 December 2011, Sberbank accounted for 24.9% of the Moscow market and 47.6% of the market in the area served by Tsentralno- Chernozemny Bank*, which represented our minimum and maximum market shares respectively in the corporate lending segment. As of 31 December 2010, the smallest and largest market shares were recorded respectively in Moscow (22.8%) and in the area served by Zapadno-Uralsky Bank* (55.4%).
