Why Russia?

This brief review of the economic situation in is based on the opinion of economists and financial experts, published in open sources.


The high prices of oil and gas have boosted the Russian economy after the depression of the Yeltsin era. According to a financial report published by Rosstat, the Russian state statistics service, issued in January 2008, the volume of investment in January 2007 was up 19%, to 354.9 billion roubles, in comparison with January 2007.

Disposable income from January 2007 to January 2008 rose 12.9% (nominally 28.5 percent) to 10,641 roubles. Real salaries rose 15.8%. These increases are fuelling the consumption boom that has seized. Retail turnover in January rose 14.1% to 911.6 billion roubles. Foodstuffs made up 45.1% of retail trade turnover in January 2008, down from 45.4% a year ago. The Deputy Minister of Economic development and Trade, Andrey Belousov reported that GDP growth in January was 7.4% The increase covered all segments in spite of the worsening world economic situation at the time.

Most importantly the number of economically active Russians reached 75.3 million last year. The growth in employment drove unemployment down to an unusually low level, and this increase in employment accounted for roughly a third of economic growth. had 9.4 million unemployed in 1999, 6.2 million in 2003, 5.6 million in 2005 and reached a record low of 4.6 million in 2007.

The World Financial crises

Russian economy has been hit by a series of crises since then. Billions of dollars of foreign capital exited the country in August following worries over the financial effects of 's invasion of. The collapse of Lehman Brothers and AIG together with other economic problems in the has had an impact on, translating into severe falls in share prices and capital outflows.

The Russian regulator has decided on several occasions to step in and closed two main stock exchanges, the MICEX, which targets individual investors and the dollar-denominated RTS, a derivatives exchange and over-the-counter market for small-cap stocks. With significant sharp falls or rises, the Russian government prefers to use crude but effective closure to calm markets and give traders time to reflect. Economists say this intervention has been effective and appropriate in the current situation.

A $130 billion financial package to shore up liquidity has been announced to stop a collapse in Russian stocks and restore confidence in the inter-bank market.

Peter Halloran, CEO of Pharos Financial Group based in, manages three Russian-focused hedge funds. He says the package was only the first step in providing liquidity for the system. “I would expect more measures to come in to provide liquidity as it is needed. The Central Bank and government know what they have to do and there will be more to come,” says Halloran.

Liam Halligan, chief economist at Prosperity Capital Management which manages around $5 billion in Russian equities and has six funds investing in the Russian economy, believes the fundamentals are extremely strong in.

Halligan points out that has large foreign exchange reserves and is the ninth largest economy in the world. The denting of investor confidence has been overstated, he believes. “Events in the are so tumultuous that every economy is affected. Of the major economies in the world, has a low proportion of its trade with the.” Halligan continues, “Russian and foreign investors believe the country will be one of the few major growth centres over the next few years.”

Hallingan goes on to say “The injection of money will improve the situation. It has put a floor under valuations for now and it has made people think about the fact that the market is so undervalued. We are seeing clients increasingly thinking of this as a buying opportunity given valuations are so low. There is also a lot of corporate money that is coming back into the market to take advantage of these low valuations.”

Rouble denomination

The rouble has declined steadily since August. Anton Struchenevsky, an economist at Troika Dialog investment bank, said the Central Bank was spending $600 million a day to buy roubles and support the currency's exchange rate, a total of $20 billion in less than two months.

Yegor Gaidar, an economist and former prime minister, praised the government's efforts to support the rouble. «This is a smart decision,» he said. «We absolutely do not need panic on the currency market.»

The Central Bank reassured markets it would continue to support the Russian currency. Some analysts say 's economy remains relatively healthy and the currency should show more resilience. “Even if the government decided to let the rouble float,” Struchenevsky said, “there would be no repeat of 1998. was in a much weaker economic position 10 years ago, and no one expects a replay.”

Some analysts think the Central Bank is trying to engineer a soft landing for the rouble, letting exchange rates fall to strengthen Russian industry by raising the costs of competitors' imported goods. The aim would be to let the rouble slide gradually to avoid causing panic.

Besides helping domestic manufacturers, this would allow the government to adopt more flexible economic policies and encourage companies to access international market with cheaper products and services.

To summarize, there are three main points which make us believe that this is the right time to do business with :

1st. The Russian economy is alive and kicking.

2nd.There is an emerging class of reputable Russian businesspeople, who have funds and are ready to invest.

3rd. At present the rouble is weak, but this is an incentive for Russian companies to join international markets.
