ACRA held a presentation for international investors at the Russian Ambassador's residence in London

On November 2, the Analytical Credit Rating Agency (ACRA) held a presentation at the Russian Ambassador’s Residence in London. The event was attended by top managers of the leading British and international investment companies, banks and enterprises of various sectors of the economy, as well as by representatives of international audit and legal firms, and the media.

During the event ACRA CEO Ekaterina Trofimova made a presentation about the Agency as well as delivered the ACRA forecast for the Russian economy.

“ACRA’s inception coincided with the introduction of rating activity regulation in Russia,” said Ekaterina Trofimova. “The combination of high professional standards and absolute transparency of the Agency for the market, investors and regulators allows to expect our ratings and analytical judgments to be recognized by a widest possible range of users. For foreign investors and banks, the Agency’s opinion may be especially valuable, as it is based not only on deep understanding of the Russian market, but also on extensive international experience of our team, including the one pertaining to credit ratings.”

“Extensive economic growth fueled by a more proactive utilization of production factors (such as labor and capital), or supported by a favorable external environment, is unlikely in the coming years, so the only real way to restart economic growth is through productivity increase,” said Ekaterina Trofimova. “In the next five years, we expect new economic stimuli to emerge, as lower inflation is to lead to an increase of investment planning horizons and financial market instrument maturities. A potential growth of income proportion in aggregate revenues of the economy should bring about additional investment opportunities, which are likely to be financed by enterprises’ own cash.”

The full version of the ACRA macroeconomic forecast is published on the Agency’s website: https://www.acra-ratings.com/research/88
