Russia Partners believes that the ability to deliver superior results is based on the following criteria:
Russia Partners’ management team is the most experienced and most stable group of managers in the Russian private equity market. Russia Partners’ senior investment professionals have been together for over a decade and were previously tested by one of the most difficult times in any private equity environment – the 1998 Russian financial crisis.
One of Russia Partners’ key advantages over other private equity firms is its cadre of very highly qualified and trained Russian employees. All of Russia Partners’ deal professionals possess both Russian and Western education and work experience. Russia Partners has built a team that combines Western ethical standards, business experience and education with an essential grounding in Russian business and culture.
Successful investing in Russia requires a hands-on approach from a locally based team. Russia Partners frequently places its own investment professionals in key positions within portfolio companies during early stages of investment or in response to specific concerns.
With over 15 years of active private equity investment in Russia, the management group has established ties with many of today’s business and government leaders in Russia. The principals are also active members of key business and industry groups, such as the U.S.-Russia Business Council, the U.S.-Ukraine Business Council, the American Chamber of Commerce in Russia, the Eurasia Foundation and the RAND Business Leaders Forum.
