Foreign banks' entry into the Russian market: motivation, entry modes and strategies
AbstractThe present paper analyses motivation, entry modes and strategies of foreign banks entering into the Russian market. The share of foreign assets in the banking sector is gradually increasing, proving the fact that more and more foreign banks show their interest in the Russian banking sector. What lies behind this growth? The article shows that motivation for entry is similar to some other developing and transition economies (both PUSH and PULL reasons exist) and presents some peculiar features concerning the modes of entry and strategies. It is shown that recently organic strategy growth is gradually replaced by M&A.
