The authoritative US magazine Global Finance has named Troika Dialog Best Bank in Russia for 2005 in three categories:

Global Finance, one of the US leading financial analysis magazines, has been published since 1987. In its annual ratings, the magazine determines the largest and most successful companies around the world.

Factors considered include market leadership, innovation, commitment to markets and evidence of a winning long-term strategy.
