Troika Dialog won Securities Market magazine’s competition, which was part of the Russia’s Towns and Regions: Organization of Investment Programs Financing conference, held by the State Debt Committee of the City of Moscow. The company became the winner in the Best Secondary Domestic Debt House in 2007 category. The awards ceremony took place on May 28 at the President Hotel in Moscow, where the conference was held.
The aim of Securities Market magazine’s competition is to identify last year’s leaders in the sub-federal and municipal loans market. The winners are chosen by the editors according to the results of a survey of professional market participants, such as issuers and specialized organizations. This year, 80 companies took part in the survey.
Troika Dialog yet again confirmed its leading status in the ruble bonds market. In the first quarter of 2008, the company was ranked first among organizers of ruble bond issues by the Cbonds (Corporate sector, excluding own issues, banks and financial institutions) information agency and organized 5 bond placements with a total volume of $700mn since the beginning of 2008.
It is the second year in a row that Securities Market magazine has named Troika Dialog the best secondary domestic debt house. Last year, Alexander Kudrin, Head of the Fixed Income Research, was named one of the three foremost fixed income market analysts.
