Sberbank CIB1 Recognized at Annual Elite of the Securities Market Awards in the Categories Best Trading Desk and Best Stock Market Company


Sberbank CIB was recognized in the annual NAUFOR “Elite of the Securities Market” awards, earning top honors in the categories “Best Trading Desk” and “Best Stock Market Company.” The awards ceremony was held on June 13, 2013 in Moscow.

Hosted by the Russian National Association of Securities Market Participants (NAUFOR) since the year 2000, the “Elite of the Securities Market” awards are one of the oldest and most prestigious accolades in the Russian securities market. The winners are the securities market participants who demonstrate the most outstanding achievements in various areas of the securities market over the previous year. Nominations are submitted by professional securities market participants who are members of NAUFOR and the winners are chosen by a nationwide jury which includes representatives of financial regulatory agencies, the securities market infrastructure as well as a number of the most respected members of the finance community. Awards were distributed in sixteen categories.

Maxim Safonov, Head of the Global Markets Department, Managing Director at Sberbank CIB, commented on receiving the award: “This award speaks to the significant results that our team achieved in 2012, despite a volatile and difficult market. Over the last year we significantly strengthened both our team and product offering, and I am sure that when the market stabilizes and activity picks up – which we expect to happen – we will be able to fully realize our potential in the area of client operations in global markets.”

Sberbank CIB continued the tradition begun by Troika Dialog2, which was recognized on numerous occasions at the nationwide “Elite of the Securities Market” awards. Troika Dialog was a four-time winner in the “Company of the Year” category and the company’s traders won in the categories “Best Trading Division” and “Best Trader” in 2003, 2005-2008, and 2010.
