For two years in a row Gazprombank Private Banking won the SPEAR'S Russia Wealth Management Awards in the nomination “Best Russian Bank for Private Clients.” This year Gazprombank Private Banking was recognized the most client-oriented bank for private clients. The award ceremony took place in Et Cetera Theater on December 14.
“I am very pleased that we became laureates in this particular nomination: after all, the future is behind those who offer a client-oriented, or client-centered, approach in business. The success awaits those who will be able to come to their clients with the products they really need at the exact moment when it is most relevant to them, and use a convenient channel to communicate with the customer. Digitization and Big Data are first helpers here. Over the past several years Gazprombank has done a lot in this area.
Private Banking might be a traditionally more conservative and classic segment where we know each of our clients well a priori, nevertheless, new technologies will inevitably come into our business as well. Therefore, we see our future development in the synergy between the impeccable work of our account managers and use of cutting-edge technologies. This victory is well deserved due to the hard work of the cohesive team of Gazprombank Private Banking!” said Sergey Potapeyko, Vice President and Head of the Private Banking Department.
