Seductive Russia, India, China: Investors Knocking at the Gates
To provide the Western investment community with insightful information about global trends and to showcase private equity opportunities in the emerging markets, International Council of Institutional Investors (“ICII”) commenced the Annual Emerging Markets Private Equity Conference (“EMPEC”) under the leadership of Mr. Primakov. ICII is pleased to announce the 2nd annual EMPEC 2007 which will take place between June 4-5, 2007 at the Congress Center of the Russian Federation Chamber of Commerce and Industry, located in the center of Moscow. EMPEC 2007 will build on the success of last year’s conference in providing unique insights and opportunities with respect to real estate, private equity and venture capital investments in the emerging markets.
By way of background, in May 2006, the ICII pursued a joint initiative with several of today’s emerging market political and economic thought leaders. The inaugural two-day EMPEC was held at the World Trade Center Moscow and featured several of the top decision-makers in private equity. These participates included world-class institutional investors such as New York State Common Retirement Fund, preeminent international private equity groups, including Texas Pacific Group and Baring Vostok, and global financial institutions such as the Overseas Private Investment Corporation Agency of the U.S. Federal Government. During the second day of EMPEC 2006, the Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation Ministry of Economic Development and Trade Andrey Sharonov for the first time announced the terms of the Russian Venture Company, the largest Venture Capital Fund of Funds in Central and Eastern Europe. Key partners of the conference included the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the London Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, and Pacific Corporate Group, a leading private equity institutional advisory firm. Otkritie Asset Management, an institutional trust management firm, was the lead sponsor of the conference.
