IFC METROPOL was the general sponsor of the 2nd Investment Forum Investments in Russia. Capital Raising Opportunities that took place on May 20, 2011 in Moscow in the Holiday Inn Sokolniki.
The participants of the Forum organized by the Stock Market
magazine and Investor.ru social network included leading Russian
investment companies, representatives of related ministries and
agencies, and journalists working for financial and economic mass
media. Aleksey Rodzyanko – Chief Executive Director of IFC METROPOL
– gave a speech at the plenary session held as a free discussion.
The insider activity law that has been much discussed recently was
of particular interest for the participants. “The insider law will
make Russia a more interesting, more attractive country in terms of
investments,” noted A.O. Rodzyanko thereby turning the discussion
to the relevant issue – how to restore the investment
attractiveness of Russia.
“The issue of Russia’s investment attractiveness discussed today
is extremely topical. That is why the discussion we had at the
Forum turned out to be so interesting,” shared his impressions Mr.
Rodzyanko at the close of the plenary session. “We spoke about what
Russia should do to improve its investment climate. Russia is the
only BRIC country that is loosing rather than gaining its
investment capital while living on sales of oil and raw materials.
Such conferences as we had today are very useful – just as constant
dripping wears away a stone, our discussions, similarly, form a
public position and give an opportunity to speak and to be heard by
those whom we address.”
Maksim Rozenblit, Development Director of IFC METROPOL’s
Corporate Finance Department, also made his presentation called
M&A Today: Prospective Industries during the Mergers and
Acquisitions: Prospective Assets professional conference held
as part of the Forum.
