Vladimir Potapov was appointed the Head of VTB Brokerage Department, Senior Vice President of VTB Bank, and head of the newly formed unit within VTB Group’s Corporate and Investment Business. The new single platform will combine VTB Capital Investment Management – asset management arm serving local and international investors; VTB Capital Brokerage – provider of brokerage services to institutional clients; VTB brokerage department, which services retail investors; and VTB Forex – provider of retail FX services.
As of the end of 2017, total assets under management in the newly formed platform exceeded RUB 1 trillion. Vladimir Potapov will be responsible for strategic and operational development.
The new business unit will be called VTB Capital Investments and will provide a full range of investment services for a variety of clients: retail and high net worth investors, as well as local and international institutional investors.
Vladimir Potapov said, “Integration of these businesses into a single investment workshop – VTB Capital Investments – enables us to expand the product line and improve the quality of our services by converging toward higher standards of product development and support. One of the main advantages of the new business unit is the application of unique expertise, based on the analysis of various market segments. We plan to give special attention to digitalization and development of online channels, which would allow developing new services, including the so-called robo-advisor. Our goal is to deliver integrated solutions to our clients, while meeting highest international standards.”
