2006 was an extraordinary year for investment in Russia. Financial markets activity in the first quarter of 2007 is on track for another impressive year. Please join us on May 3rd in Boston for an insiders’ view on what’s happening in Russia, and how you can take advantage of significant investing opportunities in Russia today.

In 2003, when we began our Russian Financial Markets series, investing in Russia was truly pioneer territory, a completely emerging market in every sense. Over time, systems have improved, government reforms have taken hold, investors have seen success, and with success, confidence has grown. For example, in 2005, Russian companies raised $5 billion through domestic and foreign IPOs; in 2006, the Russian IPO market closed the year at $17.5 billion, with many of these listings on the London Stock Exchange On average, industry analysts are looking at a 2007 Russian IPO market in the range of $20-$40 billion, depending upon world market conditions and key flotations, with an important diversification from the commodities sector into the industrial and services sectors.

At the conference, you will hear directly from Russian, U.S., and British executives sharing their perspectives on the present and the future in one of today’s fastest-growing financial markets in the world.
