VTB Capital increases its dominance of Russian investment banking market in 2014
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.
According to Thomson Reuters data VTB Capital increased its share of Russia-targeted M&A fees from 16.32% to 23.59%, increased its share of Russian ECM fees from 13.51% to 14.9% and increased its share of Russian DCM fees from 13.84% to 24.1%.
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.”
