Alfa-Bank for 2018 year increased the loan portfolio in Primorye in 1,5 times
According to the financial statements for 2018, Alfa-Bank's operating profit in Primorye Territory increased by 35% compared to last year and amounted to 1,9 billion rubles. The aggregate loan portfolio of Alfa-Bank in Primorsky Krai (Vladivostok, Ussuriysk, Nakhodka) exceeded 19 billion rubles, which is one and a half times higher than the figures for 2017 a year. Last year, the bank issued loans to 13,8 billion rubles to companies in the region.
In Primorsky Krai, the bank is actively working with enterprises of the wholesale and retail trade, food and processing industries, as well as with companies participating in foreign economic activities.
“The export potential of Primorsky Krai is very high, almost half of the total loan portfolio is occupied by enterprises - participants of foreign economic activity. For international settlements, they actively use dual-currency transactions. Last year, the demand for such a tool from our customers doubled. We offer companies that conduct foreign economic activity to issue a loan or a guarantee in the amount of up to 30 million rubles within two business days without collateral, ”noted Yury Khiteyev, manager of the NGO“ Far Eastern ”.
According to the press service of the bank, in 2018, the retail credit portfolio grew by 48% and amounted to 5,5 billion rubles. Customer deposits — deposits and current accounts — increased by 27% and reached 12 billion rubles.
In Primorsky Krai, the number of users of remote banking services is growing. In 2018, the bank canceled the commission for transfers to Alfa Mobile to accounts with other banks by requisites. This made daily operations even more profitable and more convenient. In addition, Alfa-Bank was the first in Russia to offer customers digital delivery of the card (Digital Delivery).
Today, more than 35% of the population of the region actively use the Alfa Mobile mobile banking application. In 2018, residents of Vladivostok became the most active users - 50% of the total client base, then Ussuriysk follows - more than 30%, Nakhodka - about 20%.
“Our retail results show that the residents of Primorye increasingly trust Alpha Bank. Despite the growing demand for remote banking services, it is still convenient for many to receive services in the branch. This year we plan to expand the network of offices in the territory of the region: we will open offices for servicing individuals in Vladivostok and Ussuriysk. Alfa Private will also appear in Vladivostok as a unit for high-income clients and their families, ”said Andrei Oleinik, head of development of Alfa Bank's branch network in Primorye.
