General Information

Russia and the CIS

The area encompassing Russia and Central and Eastern Europe is one of the world’s most promising markets. When seeking an organization to help you benefit from opportunities within and beyond its borders, it makes sense to select a partner that can demonstrate unparalleled strength in the region. Credit Suisse has the commitment, regional presence and global expertise to connect you with these opportunities and help you achieve your financial objectives.

Recognizing the changing economic landscape of Russia and the CIS, we opened an office in Moscow in 1991 and subsequently established offices in Kiev and St. Petersburg to provide local clients with advice and solutions that fulfill their individual needs. Credit Suisse’s integrated banking model is core to our strategy in these markets.

Private Banking

Through our local presence and global network, we combine insight into clients’ financial needs with a comprehensive understanding of the different wealth management solutions available. Credit Suisse offers clients in Russia and the CIS a dedicated local relationship manager, access to global research, including the latest views in equities, fixed income, countries and commodities and specialist advice from investment professionals based in Russia and beyond.

Credit Suisse’s private client offering in Russia and the CIS also includes access to a dedicated team of investment banking professionals that specializes in providing customized solutions and structures for financially sophisticated private clients, such as hedging stock holdings and other asset classes; monetization or volatility management; and our dedicated mid-cap Corporate Finance team which focuses exclusively on entrepreneurs and private business owners.

Investment Banking

Credit Suisse is very committed to the Russian market and has been involved in the country for over three decades, opening our first office in 1991. Since then, we have created a leading investment banking franchise in the region and advised on a number of significant M&A transactions for our institutional clients in Russia and the CIS. The Bank has played an important role in the development of the Russian market, establishing an exceptional track record in initial public offerings and debt restructuring, leading many landmark transactions.

We offer clients unparalleled local sector expertise and execution capabilities through our investment banking teams in Moscow and London. Credit Suisse is a dominant equities and fixed income house in Russia, with leading roles in transactions that underscore Credit Suisse’s execution and underwriting capabilities for clients, even in the most challenging markets.

To enhance our local #1* Equities offering, in 2010 we launched Credit Suisse Securities Moscow which is committed to establishing strategic client partnerships and providing comprehensive, quality investment services to our corporate and institutional clients in Russia and the CIS.

Credit Suisse continues to offer some of the best and most innovative structuring solutions to our local clients with extensive experience in providing traditional risk management solutions to corporates and sovereigns from the full spectrum of capabilities, spanning interest rate and foreign exchange derivatives to credit linked structures. The Bank is a leader in innovative structured products, credits and restructuring solutions, including customized solutions addressing the specific needs of our clients in Russia and the CIS.
