MARKET STRUCTURE

Other than card payments, there are few electronic retail payments, but internet and mobile banking is spreading rapidly. 

In February 2010, NBRB (National Bank of the Republic of Belarus) and CBRF, the Russian central bank, agreed on joint use of payment cards on their respective national payment systems in Belarus and Russia. 

Nearly 53.91% of banking sector assets are held by the two biggest banks, both of which are state-controlled. 

The market share of foreign-owned banks accounted for 31.81% by total bank assets (state-owned banks: 65%). 

Belarusbank issues 38% of all bank cards in Belarus and operates 26% of the national ATM network. 

Priorbank, owned by Raiffeisen Bank International (A), is the only western-owned bank, and several Russian banks are present.
