15.06.2009

Troika Dialog and its team of 35 research analysts has achieved 2nd place in the Institutional Investor All-Russia Research Team Rankings for the second year in a row, a strong showing from the team of analysts who were recognised in 13 total team positions, just one position behind first place.

Chief Economist Evgeny Gavrilenkov and senior oil and gas analyst Oleg Maximov recorded 1st place wins, reflecting how highly both areas are regarded with our clients across both Equities and Fixed Income. Troika Dialog was recognised as one of the leading players in each category of the survey underlying the strength of the team across the many sectors.

This surpasses the number of Troika Dialog analysts ranked in this survey previously. And for the first time, our Fixed Income and Metals & Mining divisions were able to rank more than one analyst per category a very difficult achievement.

Our research team now numbers 35 analysts and is of a scale where we can genuinely claim to inform our clients on all the macro, sector and company-specific trends impacting the Russian market in these challenging times.
