Two senior bankers – one from Goldman Sachs and one from Russia’s largest lender, Sberbank, – have been appointed to Moscow Exchange’s strategic planning body, the Exchange Council.
Anatoly Shvedov, who is chairman of Goldman Sachs’s Russian operation, and Andrey Shemetov, head of global markets at Sberbank CIB, the biggest Russian bank’s investment arm, will replace Steven Hellman, a former chief executive of the Russian subsidiary of Credit Suisse, and Maksim Safonov, an ex-head of global markets at Sberbank CIB, who are leaving the council, Moscow Exchange said in a statement.
The appointment of Shvedov and Shemetov was endorsed by Moscow Exchange’s supervisory board on July 21.
Shemetov had been a deputy chief executive of Moscow Exchange before replacing Safonov as Sberbank CIB’s head of global markets earlier this month.
The Exchange Council consists of 26 senior bankers and financiers. It is headed by Ruben Aganbegyan, chief executive of Russian bank Otkritie.
