Troika Dialog is once again named the Best Asset Manager in Russia according to Global Finance magazines annual rating


Troika Dialog has been named the Best Asset Manager in Russia in an annual rating of Russias Best Banks and Companies issued by Global Finance, an authoritative financial magazine. The award was handed to Pavel Teplukhin, Chairman of Troika Dialog Asset Management, at the Global Finance awards ceremony which took place on April 21, 2008 during the Russia Investment Roadshow (previously known as the Russian Economic Forum).

It is the third time that Troika Dialog is named the best among Russian asset management companies: previously, the company received the Global Finance award in this category in 2004 and 2007.

Global Finance editors, with input from clients, industry analysts, corporate reports and other expert sources, select Russias Best Banks and Companies based on a variety of criteria, both objective and subjective. Factors under consideration include market share, profitability, evidence of long-term growth strategy, management quality and commitment to improve corporate governance. According to Global Finance publisher, Joseph D Giarraputo, "Russian banks and companies had a remarkable year in 2007. And theres every evidence that may continue in 2008. While commodity prices strength clearly played a large part in the robustness of Russian economy, it was the unmistakeable signs of movement towards real corporate restructuring, that was so heartening, particularly in relation to a growing commitment to good corporate governance."
