Sberbank of Russia is the historical successor of Savings Offices established by the decree of Emperor Nikolas I, which were originally two small institutions in Saint Petersburg and Moscow with 20 employees since 1841. Later they grew into a network of savings offices spread across the country that even during the hardest of times helped sustain the stability of the Russian economy. During the Soviet period, they were transformed into the State Labour Savings Banks system. They have now formed a modern universal bank, a large international group with a brand familiar in over twenty countries worldwide.
