VTB Unveils Strategy to ?€™13

VTB Group will focus less on corporate loans and more on retail lending and investment banking, chief executive Andrei Kostin said, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

The shift is part of Kostin’s “road to 15” plan to boost VTB’s return on equity, a measure of profitability, to more than 15 percent and to more than double its share price to 15 kopeks by 2013, the newspaper reported.

VTB’s supervisory board approved the plan Wednesday. 


… 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.
