Citi is the leading international bank in Russia. From 2007 to 2013 we have organized the placement of ruble bonds for leading Russian and international corporations for a total of over 350 billion rubles.

In addition to the ruble bond sales teams in Moscow and London with access to over 400 active local investors, Citi can engage its international sales team to access a broader spectrum of foreign investors. Sales specialists know all the major emerging market bond investors well and maintain an active dialogue with them.

Citi’s fixed-income sales system spans 6 continents and more than 100 countries. Sale specialists work with more than 8000 institutional investors thus ensuring issuers access to the broadest investor base possible. Citi’s sales platform is one of the most extensive in the industry.

Both before and after the 1998 crisis Citi was a pioneer in opening the international debt market for Russian issuers: in 2002 Citi’s had a 70% market share for Eurobond issues by Russian corporates. Citi organized Eurobond placements for such companies as Gazprom, Sibneft and TNK in 2002 and built a global infrastructure to allow Russian issuers tap a broad base of international investors, including US-based investors.

Since coming to the Russian market Citi has organized bond placements for Russian and CIS issuers worth a total of $100 billion. Citi has arranged placements for 64 different companies, including 43 debut Eurobond issues. We also successfully organized the return of the Russian Finance Ministry to the international debt market following a 10-year absence. Citi became the first bank to offer the LPN structure, which to this day remain the most widely used methods for Eurobond placements. We organized the first ever ruble-denominated Eurobond as well as the first in Russia subordinated Eurobonds to be included in fixed capital (Tier 1).
