The practical application of digital economy with a focus on financial corporations can provide countries with better economic development, an increase in the number of successful startup businesses, digitalization of business processes, a stronger cybersecurity, better access of financial services for clients and more opportunities to educate the public on financial matters. The social impact that a move from corporations to a digital model can have by utilizing digitalization demonstrates how digital development can strengthen the economic state of a country in all its spheres. The most difficulty presented in the topic is found in the authors choice to delve deeper into digital models of financial corporations within Uralsib; a study that needs to be more integrated into business processes. The result of this study can challenge the digital economy of Russia to implement more practically based programmes within the financial sector. © 2018.
