International Strategies Platform
VTB Capital Investment Management’s most recent business line is an international strategies platform catering to international institutional investors. The investment team places strong importance on a diversified and fundamental stock selection process, while focusing on liquidity and preservation of capital. The actively managed strategies offer accredited investors exposure to undervalued Russian and CIS equity and fixed-income markets.

Discretionary Managed Accounts
Individual investment portfolios are a combination of several investment strategies that follow a specific investment policy statement. Strategies are selected so as to achieve maximum expected return based on the given level of risk while taking into consideration additional restrictions required by investors, including the Investment Profile. Client assets are invested in accordance to each strategy and use specified strategy weights within the established limits of the investment policy statement. Investors always have the option to make adjustments to their investment program during the course of the investment management process. The list of basic strategies includes: UCITS Equity and Fixed Income funds, Alpha Equities, Mid- & Small-Cap Equities, TOP10 Global ideas, Balanced Income, Fixed Income, BRIC, Structured Notes, Customized Strategies and Dividend Income.

Structured Assets (Closed-end Funds)
Investors have an alternative way to diversify their investments. They may choose to invest through alternative investment opportunities, which are not associated with the stock market. Such investments may have different potential yields and levels of risk. One type of alternative investment is a closed-end fund (CEF).

With the help of a CEF, project and real-estate developers are able to fulfill a variety of objectives:

  • Structuring and securitization of assets, including real estate and land
  • Establish venture funds, hedge funds, and private equity funds — offering a wide variety of investment objectives and asset structures
  • Attract external investors to carry out various projects
  • Ensure the protection of the business and assets

Retail Investment Funds
Open-end investment funds are highly suitable investment products for most private investors. VTB Capital Investment Management offers a diverse line-up of 20 Russia-domiciled and 2 Luxembourg-domiciled funds with varying investment strategies. The company offers: money market fund, bond funds (including GEM fund and Eurobond fund), hybrid funds, index fund, diversified equity funds (including Global Dividends, BRIC as well as Russian sector funds), and commodity fund.
