Troika Dialog placed second in the nomination for "Best Fixed Income Sales," an annual award given out by Cbonds Information Agency. The awards ceremony took place on December 10, 2009, during the Russian Bond Congress in St. Petersburg.
Troika Dialog's Sales and Research teams have been awarded the Cbonds prize on several previous occasions. Troika Dialog is the leading operator on the secondary bond market, and maintains a strong presence on the secondary Eurobond market. In addition to Russia, the company operates on the Ukrainian and Kazakhstani debt markets, and provides corporate clients with the full range of services for debt securities offerings.
Troika Dialog is the leading maker of investment products in Russia with an increasing global presence. In 2009, the company unveiled Troika Index Bonds – the newest addition to the company's sales offering and an entirely unique product to Russia’s private investments market. Troika Index Bonds are released in accordance with Russian law and are analogous to products with principal protection, now a popular product on foreign markets. The first issuance of Troika Index Bonds elicited considerable demand, confirming private investors’ interest in this type of product. The company is already planning future issuances, and will continue offering its clients new investment strategies.
