Mission and Values

The year 2016 was a landmark for Sberbank—the bank celebrated its 175th anniversary. Since its establishment, Sberbank concentrated on forming a trust-based and stable relationship with clients that is reflected in its Mission and Values.


We give people confidence and reliability, we make their life better by helping realize their hopes and dreams.


Sberbank is the main bank of the country that determines unprecedented requirements for us as a financial institution: we are an indicator of the health and stability of Russia’s financial system. Sberbank is a partner for the vast majority of citizens (over 83 mln) and companies of Russia (1.8 mln).

The bank forms trust-based and responsible relations not only with clients but also with other stakeholders: the state, shareholders, employees, and partners. This is a top priority and is reflected in Sberbank’s policy in the area of corporate and social responsibility corresponding to ISO 26000 and aimed at management of relations with stakeholders and harmonization of Sberbank’s effect on the national economy, social sphere, and ecology.

In 2016, the half way point of Sberbank’s Development Strategy for 2014–2018 was passed (the “Strategy”). Despite the unprecedented turbulence in 2015, the business model and all key systems have successfully passed the stability test. In 2016, Sberbank returned to the path of successful implementation of the Strategy and ranked among the most successful banks in the world.
