Invest AD Renews Ties With Sberbank on Asset Management Cooperation

Published

on

Invest AD, part of the Abu Dhabi Investment Council, and Sberbank Asset Management CJSC signed a Memorandum of Strategic Cooperation during the recent St. Petersburg International Economic Forum in Russia. This is a continuation of a strategic relationship in which they signed a similar document back in December 2012. OAO Sberbank is Russia’s largest lender and owns Sberbank Asset Management CJSC.

Both of these entities will seek to cooperate in asset management in the regions of Russia, CIS and the Middle East. Legal support and the sharing of market research enables the two organizations greater transparency when investing. Invest AD had worked with Sberbank as far back as 2009, when Invest AD joined Sberbank and invested in Mountain Carousel ski resort near Sochi, in the Krasnaya Polyana region.

David Sanders, chief investment officer of Invest AD, commented in a press release: “Invest AD has a long history of investing in the Middle East & Africa and in providing quality investment opportunities to clients. We are confident that our deepening partnership with Sberbank Asset Management will allow Russian investors excellent access to investment opportunities in the Middle East & Africa and allow Invest AD and Sberbank Asset Management to collaborate on innovative investment products.”
