Super-Apps Versus Super-Services
Now is the time when the quality of service and customer satisfaction are truly a sustainable investment, a profitable solution, and a competitive advantage. We are betting on this ourselves, and we understand that we cannot and will not be able to offer super-services in areas that are not core to us. We will make a financial super-service with the highest level of quality and as partners. In order for our customers to receive content, video, and other services, we will simply choose the best partners on the market

Is Modern Business Capable of Implementing Successful Long-Term Strategies?
Today, the Russian banking sector is perhaps the most advanced one on the market. It is certainly one of the most advanced in the world. We are around 10 years ahead of Europe, and around 20 years ahead of America. Unfortunately, this is not the case in all industries, but it is in banking
