Sberbank is the largest bank in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), and is the principal shareholder of Sberbank Europe (formerly Volksbank International AG [VBI]). Sberbank Europe comprises nine (9) universal banks under one roof, with its headquarters in Vienna, Austria. The bank group operates close to 280 branches and employs approximately 4,500 staff (2013).
In the course of modernising its systems, Sberbank had to introduce a new, equitable rating system for its private and micro-customers to ensure business continuity across all nine (9) countries.
