Russia Banking Sector – Rosbank, UniCredit etc.

Our last seminar before the summer break took place on the 17th of June and was focused on Foreign banks in Russia with an analysis of Rosbank and UniCredit general ecosystems. It took place just before the SPIEF 2013, during which event Société Générale confirmed its objective of making 15% ROE by 2015.

Societe Generale “didn’t identify any direct risks” from a financial point of view from Golubkov’s case, Deputy CEO Bernardo Sanchez Incera told shareholders at an annual meeting last month. It is is monitoring indirect risks from the case, he said.

That the Bank’s top management was not warned in advance -as as courtesy- of such a high visible move as the Golubkov arrest clearly sends a worrying signal, to which situation Rosbank’s corporate and retail clients have already reacted :

During a month, 19.5% of corporate customer funds and 1.2% of retail deposits were withdrawn from Rosbank, part of Societe Generale Group, according to Rosbank’s financial statements seen by Izvestia.
