Alfa Bank 2010 Profit Soars

Alfa Bank said Monday that its net profit increased sevenfold to $553 million in 2010 and its gross loan portfolio rose by more than $3 billion year on year to $18.2 billion, thanks to an increase in corporate lending.

The bank said it has cut provisions for loan impairments to $1.38 billion in 2010 from $1.5 billion a year before, while its net interest margin rose to $1.3 billion from $1.1 billion.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
