In November, VTB Capital became the first Russian investment bank to enter the top-20 world M&A consultants in the Dealogic ranking. During the past year, we continued to actively expand our business, geographically by opening offices in Sofia and New York, and by entering into several strategic alliances with leading international financial institutions. I am glad that with VTB Capital’s effective teamwork in 2012, we have been able to achieve our goals'.
