05.06.2012

Troika Dialog, one of the leading investment companies in the CIS, is pleased to announce the success of its team of analysts who were awarded 12 team rankings in the esteemed Institutional Investor All-Russia Analyst rankings 2012. In addition, Troika Dialog was named second overall in the All-Russia Research Team rankings. Separately, Oleg Maximov, Senior Oil & Gas Analyst seized best in field in the Emerging Markets Equity & Fixed-Income Research Awards 2012 for his individual sector research offering.

Five of Troika Dialog’s equity research analysts recorded leadership positions in their individual industry or macro fields in the All-Russia Research awards: Evgeny Gavrilenkov in Economics, Alexey Bulgakov was recognised in the Corporate Debt field, Mikhail Stiskin in Metals & Mining, Oleg Maximov in Oil & Gas and Alexander Kotikov in Utilities. In addition, Troika’s analysts covering Industrials, Real Estate and Fixed Income Strategy finished in second place in their respective categories. Weighted by market capitalisation, Troika Dialog achieved the overall top ranking in Russian Equity Research (first place in Russia’s sectors that represent almost 75% of the market) and came second overall in the wider EMEA survey across Fixed Income Research.

In this survey, clients of the firm complimented Troika Dialog for its research team’s level of industry knowledge, local market expertise, quality of service and professionalism offered to both Russian and international investors.

“In comparison with 2011 we noticeably strengthened our positions in the Institutional Investor rankings: this year five of Troika’s analysts occupied leading places,” commented Paolo Zaniboni, Head of Research at Troika. He added: “It is clear that today our analytical products are highly popular on the market, especially taking into account the new scale of business in light of the Sberbank deal and the markets that are opening for us in connection with it. We are continuing to actively work on strengthening our positions and develop our product line”.

Andy Smith, Head of Equity Research at Troika Dialog, commented, “We are always pleased when Troika Dialog receives the endorsement of our clients through these awards, which recognise the valuable insights we provide to help guide their investment decisions. In a year in which Troika Dialog’s merger with Sberbank was approved to create Russia’s largest universal banking player, these results represent a strong foundation on which we can continue to build and enhance our leading franchise.”

“It’s good to know that you are part of one of the best research teams on the market and one that provides leading coverage of an area as extensive as EMEA,” remarked Alexander Kudrin, Managing Director and Head of Fixed Income Research at Troika Dialog. “Despite the current turbulent atmosphere on the financial markets, our products continue to be in demand. At the same time, currently a number of our clients are initially considering more conservative debt market instruments as investment priorities and we are happy to provide them with our expertise, which they highly value.”

Institutional Investor's ninth annual All-Russia Research Team was selected by more than 465 buy-side analysts and portfolio managers at some 315 money management firms worldwide overseeing an estimated $200 billion in Russian assets.
