Andrey Y. Gribov was born on April 11, 1966 in Lyubertsy, Moscow region.

In 1989, he graduated from the Moscow State Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (Technical University). Then he studied at the Finance Academy under the Government of the Russian Federation where he earned a degree in economics in 1993. A year later, he continued his education at the Moscow State University which he graduated with a degree in law.


Andrey Y. Gribov is the author of the book "The Institutional Theory of Money" considered in legal science to be one of the most comprehensive studies dedicated to problems of understanding the legal regulation of money and securities. The bottom line of this work is definition of the concepts of securities, money, currency, and most importantly, rules of circulation of different types of money and securities that are relevant and necessary for normal functioning of Russia’s financial system.

Another research carried out by Andrey Y. Gribov includes reconstruction of the Great Yasa of Genghis Khan. The law code was restored and pieced together out of separate sources. It used to define the legal system of one of the greatest countries in planet’s history.

In the new and not quite typical book for Russia called “How to Make a Billion or Intellectual Entrepreneurial Capital” Andrey Gribov criticizes Marxism pointing out that it is incorrect to leave out from the analysis of the process of value creation such important elements as investment by an entrepreneur of not only their labor but also their individual Intellectual entrepreneurial capital. From the systematic analysis perspective it goes on to show necessary and sufficient components of the Intellectual entrepreneurial capital that guarantee business success.

To popularize scientific knowledge Andrey Gribov supports publishing in Russia of the best titles of the renowned scientists. Currently Andrey Gribov finances in translation into Russian and publishing of the works of the remarkable Italian sociologist and economist Vilfredo Pareto “Manual of Political Economy”, “The Socialist Systems (Les Systemes socialistes)” and “The Transformation of Democracy”.


In 1993, Andrey Y. Gribov became Chairman of the Board of Platina Commercial Bank.

In 1997, under the pioneering development strategy of the bank an integrated multibank payment system CyberPlat was established. In 2001, Andrey Y. Gribov as its founder took up the position of CEO CyberPlat JSC.

Cyberplat system went on to become a backbone for creating world’s best Russia’s strategic information infrastructure for accepting small payments that also increased the level of mobile penetration up to 30% bringing about Russia’s 1% GDP growth. Another effect of the introduction of this infrastructure was emergence of the competitiveness on the market for accepting utility payments which eventually led to the sharp decline of time loss for consumers when paying for this service across the country.

Cyberplat’s payment acceptance network in Russia, India, and Kazakhstan currently exceeds 1 480 000 outlets.

In order to strengthen the stability of Russia’s banking system amid sanctions, Cyberplat under guidance of Mr. Gribov rolled out a new product to the market – CyberFT system.

CyberFT is a universal system for exchanging financial data and legally valid electronic ISO15022 and ISO20022 documents (Swift Fin protocol). It enables different participants of economic relations to securely interact with each other, both in Russia and abroad.

CyberFT is an independent product and represents a convenient and totally secure solution that ensures strict compliance with national payment legislation of any country. CyberFT fully protects transactions from external political threats and ensures integrity of information, containing trade secret.

By late of 2019 more than 500 participants have joined CyberFT, including more than 100 leading banks (inclusive of Sberbank, VTB, AlfaBank, UniCredit, Nordea, Sovcombank, etc.), as well as large holding structures, became participants of the CyberFT. Including platform CyberFT turned the momentum of the entire holding EVRAZ of the 52 large companies in Russia, providing it through communication within the holding company and servicing banks.


Besides the development of high-tech projects, Platina Bank is active in the investment market delivering various transport, communications and construction projects. The most notable one is a real estate development project delivered in 2004 – the class A business centre City Central Tower located at Ovchinnikovskaya embankment, right in the centre of Moscow.

Currently, one of the Bank’s strategic priorities is investing in the agriculture segment – Platina Bank is the main shareholder of the interregional agricultural holding Rodnoye Pole (Native Field). Production base of Rodnoe Pole makes up about 15 000 ha of agriculturally used lands.
