Banking in the CIS: Emerging Opportunities

DAY TWO, 11:00-12:15

As banking sectors in the CIS emerge from crisis mode and growth returns, competition in the region is set to intensify over the next few years as dominant Russian banks pursuing universal banking models compete with revitalized foreign banks and nimble private local players. Major themes this panel will debate include the drivers of credit recovery in different markets, the implications of changing regulatory and funding environments, the sell-down of state banking assets, and who is potentially best placed to capitalize on the opportunities – and to avoid the pitfalls – offered by CIS markets.
