SPIBA Half-Year Report

Our members about us

I found the event organized by SPIBA and Bank Saint-Petersburg very interesting. The topic was very up-to-date and the presentations of the bank and rating agency representatives were very informative. I liked that the graphs with specific data on the global and Russian economy, the rating forecasts with consideration of the current geopolitical situation. I was especially curious to hear the experts' opinions and comments of the speakers. >>>>
