SME Banking Agency Profile
Our story began on October 23, 2010, when Andrii Hidulian founded SME Banking Club community after 10 years working in the SME business of Raiffeisen Bank Aval.
We have united over 20 banks in 5 countries: Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Moldova, Azerbaijan, and Kyrgyzstan. And we have become the industry’s “perpetual engine”.
Our aim is to contribute to the continuous innovative development of SMEs by analyzing accurate data and implementing modern technologies.
In 2022, we took a step forward and transformed into information and analytical agency – SME Banking Agency.
We specialize in SME banking
We equip banks with global success stories and cutting-edge technology so that you can keep up with the times and constantly improve your service.
SME Banking Agency’s mission
- To help the SME segment prosper by adopting best practices and IT technologies.
- To provide banks and financial companies with the most reliable data to make accurate decisions.

Our unbreakable principles
Professionalism. Our experts have experience in the SME sector (including TOP management positions), with a combined experience of 18 years.
Unity. It is more effective to develop the market together than separately. That is why we are building a community of banks with common interests.
Speed. We are always in touch, responding promptly and delivering on our commitments as quickly as possible.
Digitality. We promote modern and progressive solutions that enable banks to improve their processes and outcomes.
SME Banking Agency is a single information hub and knowledge base. We collect information directly from banks and use it to produce analytics. With us, you know what to do, how to do it, and how not to “step on the rake”.
