Major Russian companies such as Gazprombank, the country’s third-largest lender, and development bank VEB are getting together at a forum in Shanghai on November 6 organised by Moscow Exchange and Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) to discuss investment opportunities in Russia.
Other Russian firms to be represented at the Russian Capital Markets Forum are gas giant Gazprom, aluminium producer Rusal, oil company Lukoil and electricity grid operator Rosseti, according to a statement from New York-based financial and corporate communications company Frontier.
