Sberbank will remain in remote areas throughout Russia
The development of digital technologies will not affect the Sberbank network in remote villages - offices will remain, or bank partners will come to their aid. Since 2016 of the year, a moratorium has been introduced in Sberbank on closing branches, primarily in rural areas and in remote areas. They are not going to break it.
“We are conducting serious work, including as part of the Central Bank’s working group on accessibility. It must be understood that the presence of a bank office in a settlement is a matter of the presence or absence of a communication channel, personnel, police or other security structure, an office that meets the requirements of a financial organization, ”Oleg Ganeev, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Sberbank, said at a press conference.
Despite the difficulties, this year Sberbank transformed and modernized about one thousand offices in villages throughout Russia. At the same time, the list of services is being expanded there. Partnerships are also being established with retail chains so that a retail outlet can provide a minimum banking service - this allows you to replace a bank in a village if residents require a minimum set of services, for example, like withdrawing a small amount of cash from a card.
“By the end of the year, there will be at least three thousand such points across the country. Everything is ahead of schedule and depends on the mood in a particular region. The Far East was the first where this pilot was realized and showed its effectiveness. We will definitely develop this format, since it is in demand, ”said Oleg Ganeev.
According to him, Sberbank will expand the network of mobile offices and increase the range of products and services that these offices provide. Other services of the Sberbank eco-system will be available.
