Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Welcome to the website of the Saint Petersburg International Banking Conference!

As you know, since the mid-nineties the City of Saint Petersburg has been annually hosting the Northwestern Banking Conference, which throughout the years has become an event broadly acclaimed in financial and banking circles both in Russia and abroad.

Considering the high international standing of the conference, as well as the relevance and diversity of its discussions, organizers have made a decision to review the format of the conference in order to support its further development as one of the key international financial forums in Russia. Essentially, the changes pertain to the name of the conference, its venue and website. As before, the conference discussions will continue to cover issues of the utmost relevance to the financial and banking sectors. In addition to a busy agenda, the conference has been traditionally offering informal evening entertainment events held at the best sites of Saint Petersburg during the white nights period.

This year, key themes of the conference will be:

  • Banking System: Post-crisis Development Outlook
  • Role of Banks in Building an International Financial Center in Russia
  • The Changing Banking Landscape: Public / Private Sectors, New Non-banking Competitors
  • Implications of the Basle III Framework for the Russian Banking System

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the XVI Saint Petersburg International Banking Conference!

On behalf of the conference organizers:
A. Konstandyan,
President, Promsvyazbank
