This has been a record since the foundation of the Bank.

And, in principle, we still have very positive expectations till the end of the year, although I’m always afraid to predict as everything can happen in the current macroeconomic situation; so the bankers are always very superstitious. “However, Gref did not give a specific annual forecast on profit.

For the same period of the last year it amounted to 19.6 billion rubles. Assets decreased by 1.1% in the last summer month mostly due to the fact that the currency component was overvalued as a result of the strengthened ruble. Since the beginning of 2016 the assets have decreased by 5.2%, amounting to 21 trillion 869.26 billion rubles.

Sberbank has provided its corporate clients with the loans totaling approximately to 5.4 trillion rubles for the period of 8 months. This is 1.5 times more than for the same period of 2015.

The funds of individuals have amounted to more than 11 trillion rubles. Their volume has increased by 1.3 % since the beginning of the year.

“Individuals are growing. This year we are experiencing the good dynamics on consumer loans. The dynamics on the mortgage credit lending has significantly revived from the second half of the year. This is a very positive factor, “- German Gref said at a meeting with the prime minister.

Sberbank has optimistic expectations regarding 2016. An increase in almost all segments, except for business lending, is being expected. “We will see the growth in almost all other segments till the end of the year “, – said Gref.
