The Ministry of Finance of Russia in the near future is preparing to place Eurobonds. Deputy Minister of Finance stated that the selection procedure of the placement completed, but their names were not disclosed. We assume that among the main contenders for the IPO of the largest Russian banks and investment companies, such as VTB, Renaissance capital and Sberbank.
The Ministry will issue Eurobonds with the aim of returning capital to Russian entrepreneurs from abroad amid sanctions. Entrepreneurs who invest their funds in these securities will be exempt from paying tax on income at the time of release of bonds occurred on the background of changes in the exchange rate. The Ministry also ensures the anonymity of transactions, if the entrepreneur opens an account in a Russian Bank, who will directly interact with the National settlement Depository.
Thus, the number of businessmen will be able to avoid material losses in the result of a new round of us sanctions. Given the speed of implementation of this allocation, demand for paper will be great.
