8th International Forum

CIS Private Equity and Venture Capital

Wednesday, April 25 to Thursday, April 26, 2012
Hilton Leningradskaya Hotel, Moscow
The Government’s strong commitment to create a global financial centre in Moscow and to attract large global private equity groups and sovereign wealth funds led to the recent announcement of a $10 billion state-backed private equity fund. With already existing 4 billion USD of fund commitments and a reality of 150% IRR (source: a recent questionnaire held by PERCIS), there is no doubt that Russian private equity is rapidly becoming a preferred asset class for many forward thinking investors.
