RDIF attracts new international investors to the Moscow Exchange

The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and a consortium of international institutional investors from China, Singapore, UAE, Qatar, US, UK and Germany have invested in the Moscow Exchange.

The consortium will purchase a part of the Moscow Exchange stake being offered by the Central Bank of Russia.
 
RDIF has been a shareholder in the Moscow Exchange since early 2012. The fund initially purchased shares in the company prior to its IPO through a series of co-investment transactions with blue-chip investors exceeding USD1bn. These included the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), Cartesian Capital, BlackRock, China Investment Corporation and Kuwait Investment Authority.
 
RDIF was a cornerstone investor in the Moscow Exchange’s IPO when it co-invested with additional international institutional investors. Since the IPO, the fund has been supporting the company in its governance through its presence on the Moscow Exchange supervisory board and key board committees. 
 
Kirill Dmitriev, chief executive of RDIF, says: “We are delighted that RDIF managed to attract our partners as co-investors from China, Singapore, Qatar, UAE, USA, UK and Germany. As the basis of the financial infrastructure in Russia, we believe that the Moscow Exchange has considerable capitalisation growth potential.”
