Alfa-Bank has launched Alfa Network, a Russian-language marketplace platform, in Russia, Kazakhstan and Belarus. Alfa Network allows users to post and find offers for trade transactions, buy and sell assets (including real estate), attract investments and make investments. Alfa-Bank also offers users a number of additional services, such as consultation on foreign economic activity, information on currency legislation in the Russian Federation and personal consultation on financial products. In the future, Alfa-Bank also plans to connect external partners to the marketplace in order to add more services.
Alfa-Bank plans to attract 30,000 participants to the platform this year, including owners and top managers of small- and medium-sized businesses, investors and heads of trade and logistics departments at large corporations. The platform is closed and available only at the invitation of Alfa-Bank, which guarantees the trustworthiness of its participants as well as the confidentiality of personal data.
Alfa Network was created in partnership with the English-language Opportunity Network, an international platform established in 2014 that has already brought together 15,000 entrepreneurs from 113 countries.
