Abstract :This paper provides an overview of foreign entry of Asian banks from China, Japan, and South Korea into the Russian banking market, particularly focusing on the analysis of their business activities. The author demonstrates that despite relatively high positions of Asian banks in the global rankings, the scope of their activities in Russia remains rather limited. Historically, it is possible to define three stages of foreign entry of Asian banks, namely, 1990s, 2007-09, and 2011-14, however, the majority of banks has entered Russia in 2000s, following Russia’s high economic growth. Chinese banks entered as pioneers; nevertheless, Japan is currently leading in terms of number of domestic subsidiaries. The analysis of credit and deposit portfolios, allowed to identify the following market segments in which Asian banks operate: support to their domestic clients under the follow the customer approach, corporate loans to both Russian and large foreign companies, corporate loans to Russian SMEs, and investment into federal bonds of Russia’s government. The retail banking is mostly comprised of automobile loans with the Japanese banks having the leading positions in this market segment. The paper also highlights the fact that the quality of the current credit portfolio structure is highly concentrated, industry-biased, and short-term. Thus, Asian banks can hardly be regarded as the providers of the manufacturing FDI that are crucial for Russia’s economy.
