8th Annual Investment Forum Russia One-on-One 2010 was held on January 27-28 in London. This is a key event organized by Deutsche Bank with a view to further attracting investment to the Russian market.
The forum is traditionally conducted by Deutsche Bank as individual meetings of investors with heads of major Russian companies. The forum, already well-known in international financial circles, has generated great interest among institutional investors not only from London, but also from New York, Boston, Stockholm, Edinburgh, Frankfurt and other global financial centers.
There were about 1,000 meetings between Russian companies and investment funds, thus promoting a direct constructive dialog between portfolio investors and leaders of Russian business. The conference again demonstrated the efficiency of such a dialog for keeping the market updated on the strategy and activities of Russian companies, and also for monitoring the sentiment of the investment community.
Plenary sessions were held at which Russian experts delivered reports: Alexey Ulyukaev, First Deputy Chairman of Bank of Russia, Igor Yurgens, Chairman of the Management Board of Institute of Contemporary Development, Dmitry Trenin, Director of Carnegie Moscow Center, Sergey Karaganov, Chairman of the Presidium of Council on Foreign and Defense Policy.
Investors highly appreciated the experts’ reports, and all those present at the forum received answers to topical questions concerning Russia’s economic and political development, obtained experts’ opinions on the current situation on the Russian market and discussed burning issues of the state policy in the area of economy and financial markets.
The forum was a great success, thus providing another piece of evidence of a further strengthening of Deutsche Bank’s positions on the Russian market.
