/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Troika Dialog Group announces the appointment of Igor
Sagiryan as President of the Group. Mr. Sagiryan's responsibilities
will include overseeing new business development for Troika Dialog
Group as well as managing the company's strategic tasks in its
operations with institutional and private clients, the company's
press center reported.

Igor Sagiryan joins Troika Dialog from Renaissance Group, where
he worked as President of the Company overseeing the Group's key
commercial ties, government relations, and the company's Investment
Banking and financial services unit.

Speaking about his appointment, Mr. Sagiryan said, "The global economic
changes we have witnessed simultaneously pose new challenges and
open unique opportunities going forward. The future of the economy is
on the emerging markets, especially such countries as Russia, China
and Africa. The changes taking place in the financial industry laid
the groundwork for new approaches to building product offerings and
customer service models. Traditional investment banks are giving way
to institutes with wider and more universal service offerings. For me,
mapping out the next format of the financial institute together with
Troika's team is both a challenge and an honor."

Founded in 1991, Troika Dialog Group is the leading independent full
service investment bank and asset management firm in Russia. The
Group's business consists of securities sales and trading, investment
banking, private wealth and asset management, retail distribution
and alternative investment. Troika Dialog's operations are located
in 24 cities across Russia plus offices in London, New York, Kyiv,
Almaty and Nicosia.
