Citi's Russia Equity business is the first choice among issuers for their capital raising needs due to its unmatched global footprint, diverse range of products and track record of executing transactions for its clients amid unprecedented market conditions.
We were one of the first international banks to enter the Russian market with on-the-ground presence in Moscow since 1992, providing world-class financial products and solutions across a broad range of asset classes through our underwriting, sales and trading, distribution and research capabilities.
Issuers have turned to Citi for inaugural issuances, repeat business and their largest, landmark transactions, demonstrating our structuring and execution expertise to meet client needs. Since 2007 Citi has executed the largest number of Russian jumbo equity deals (according to Dealogic).
Citi is uniquely positioned to source demand for equity offerings via its locally present but globally integrated distribution network with dedicated Emerging Markets specialists based in Russia, US, Europe and Asia. Since 2005, our Equity Sales & Trading platform offers our Russian and international clients a full range of products, including cash equities, derivatives, Delta 1, structuring, equity finance and prime brokerage. We are a leading trader in Russian stocks and can execute trades across MICEX and any other recognized exchange in any major currency.
