VTB Capital increases its dominance of Russian investment banking market in 2014

13 January 2015

New independent analysis provided by Thomson Reuters shows that in 2014 VTB Capital increased its market share of the investment banking market in Russia (M&A, ECM and DCM) to 22.01% in 2014 from 14.87% in 2013.

Riccardo Orcel, Deputy CEO of VTB Group and Head of Global Banking at VTB Capital, said: “The difficult operating environment experienced in 2014 meant that clients turned to their most trusted advisors to help guide them through the challenges of navigating choppy financial markets successfully. In times of uncertainty clients know that a bank whose core business is focused on emerging markets will always be there for them and this contrasts with the “here today, gone tomorrow” attitude of some international banks.”

VTB Capital was named the Best Investment Bank in Russia by the Euromoney 2014 Awards for Excellence for the third year in a row. VTB Capital was also named the “Best Investment Banker” in Russia by Acquisition International Magazine, becoming the first Russian investment bank to win this award. VTB Capital is the Best Sales and Trading firm in Russia, according to the Institutional Investor All-Russia Survey 2014 and Thomson Reuters Extel Survey 2014. VTB Capital’s Research team reclaimed the top spot in the Institutional Investor 2014 All-Russia investor survey.
