MOSCOW, Oct. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On October 27, Fosun Group announced the launch of Fosun Eurasia Capital LLC in Moscow (hereinafter referred to as "Fosun Eurasia"), a key integrated financial platform for Fosun's investment and asset management advisory businesses in Russia and neighbouring countries. Fosun Eurasia has been co-founded by Fosun and its local partners in Russia, Ms.Tanya LANDWEHR and Mr. Igor DANILENKO, two leading figures in Russia's financial services industry.
Fosun Eurasia will identify value investment opportunities in the region for deployment of Fosun's capital, to further strengthen Fosun's global investment capabilities, and to quicken the pace at which Fosun continues to build a multi-billion dollar global asset management business. As a sign of its commitment to the Russian market, Fosun will provide strong financial support to opportunities in the region, providing the team with an unconstrained investment approach covering fixed income, direct investments, real estate, bond, equity and private equity projects.
Next to deployment of internal capital, Fosun Eurasia will provide external investment advisory services to both local and international investors, combining the global investment strength of Fosun Group, with the extensive operational investment experience of its co-founders.
Ms. Tanya LANDWEHR has over 20 years of extensive investment management and advisory experience in the capital markets of Europe and the Asia Pacific. Before co-founding Fosun Eurasia, she held the position of CFO at TKB BNP Paribas Investment Partners in Saint Petersburg, Russia. Here she helped the company to grow into the world's largest advisor on Russian equities as well as one of Russia's three largest asset management companies at its peak.
Mr. Igor DANILENKO has strong track record in the field of equity investments, being named as one of the top three buy-side professionals in Russia according to the Thomson Reuters Extel Survey 2013 and 2015. Igor has successfully developed, managed and advised on high alpha Russian equity strategies, consistently out-performing global peers across all market capitalisations. At Fosun Eurasia he will focus on Equities, Private Equity and Special Situations.
Mr. Guo Guangchang, Chairman of Fosun, said, "Russia is geographically a conduit linking Europe and Asia. With its own distinctive economic characteristics, Russia has strong influences in the region. We are very pleased to announce that the asset advisory platform was built in Russia, marking an important milestone for the laying out of Fosun's globalization strategy. Fosun Eurasia has a high-quality management and investment team, with the capability to invest in Russian stocks, fixed-income products, private equities, debts and properties and with research capabilities covering various sectors. Coupled with Fosun's financial support and specialized resources in different segments, this will contribute to better development of this investment platform in Russia for the long term development, facilitating realization of Fosun's value investing principles in Russia and the entire CIS region."
Tanya LANDWEHR said, "The inception of Fosun Eurasia has unique value in Russia's financial market, and underpins the increasing and growing importance of bilateral investment and trade between China and Russia. Fosun Eurasia has gathered some of the industry's top talents who have extensive investment experience in different fields and asset classes. Our collaboration with Fosun Group will enable us to invest with nearly unrivaled flexibility in opportunities throughout the region.
Fosun Eurasia will explore mid-and long-term value investment opportunities for Fosun throughout the region. As an financial and asset advisory platform, the company will identify and evaluate investment opportunities in energy, natural resources, consumption, manufacturing, and other industries in Russia, Mongolia and the CIS region, selecting high-quality projects for potential investment. As a diversified investment platform, Fosun Eurasia is able to invest in a broad array of industries, which will create strong synergy with various investment segments of Fosun Group.
