Since 1994, Morgan Stanley has been building relationships and expanding its product offerings in Russia. Morgan Stanley did not leave Russia after the 1998 financial crisis, and its uninterrupted presence has fostered trust and credibility with key governmental and corporate decision makers. In addition to its long-existing representative office, Morgan Stanley has recently established a local trading platform and opened a Russian subsidiary bank in October 2005 allowing it to provide a full suite of financial services to its clients in Russia.
Our local knowledge of the rapidly evolving Russian market, combined with our international perspective and access to capital markets, has given us an unmatched ability to assist clients in Russia across a range of industries. As a result, Morgan Stanley has managed most of the highest profile and most successful transactions in equity, mergers and acquisitions and debt in the Russian market.
