Top 10 banks in terms of loans
Because of low consumer`s demand and slowdown of inflation to projected values, the Bank of Russia moved to easing of monetary policy. The main tool of the regulator is the key rate: currently it amounts to 6,5%. On the next meeting of the Board of directors of the Bank of Russia, that will be held on December 13th, a decision, possibly, will be taken for further lowering of the key rate. Taken measures should encourage bank lending, and, consequently, revival of demand.
Sberbank of Russia is the leading bank in terms of the volume of loans granted to natural persons: on November of 2019, loan portfolio achieved 7 101 billion RUB, that amounts to 41,6% of the total volume of provided loans (s. Picture 1).
