17 June (Webinar) Russia Banking Sector – Rosbank, UniCredit etc.

Register now for our next Web Seminar, which will focus on Foreign banks in Russia with an analysis of (for example) Rosbank and UniCredit general ecosystems. It will take place on the 17th of June (10AM London, 11AM Paris, 13AM Moscow).

A year and half ago, Emerval published its views on the sector. This seminar will be an opportunity to reflect about what really happened during the period 2012-2013.

Why is this important ? Foreign owned banks represent a massive share of total Foreign Direct Investments (FDIs) in Russia. The recent news show that operational risk is still significant and should be carefully assessed in valuing portfolios of investments in the banking sector in Russia.

We look forward to your joining the webinar and hope to make it an interactive experience.

La Retraite de Russie des banques de la zone euro. Vers une nouvelle Berezina?

Par Jean-Marc Brassac / 14/12/2011

Jean-Marc Brassac, spécialiste des marchés émergents de la société indépendante de conseil en investissements Emerval, brosse un tableau exhaustif de la situation bancaire russe à travers le retrait des grandes banques étrangères investies en Russie.

Le point sur les forces en présence.

Selon la banque d’affaire russe Uralsib (Source : Business New Europe, daté du 4 octobre 2011), les banques russes, au premier rang desquelles la principale banque d’Etat Sberbank, pourraient profiter des difficultés rencontrées par les banques de la zone euro (crainte de la contagion de la crise de la dette grecque, très probable récession dans la zone euro, contraintes liées aux règles prudentielles dites « Bâle III) et de la chute vertigineuse de leurs cours boursiers, pour acquérir leurs actifs situés en Europe centrale et orientale, et en Turquie.

Constitueraient, notamment, des cibles potentielles pour des opérations de fusions & acquisitions à moyen terme, les actifs des banques européennes suivantes : Société Générale (France), UniCredit (Italie), Raffeisen (Autriche) et le groupe belge KBC.
Plusieurs journaux ont ainsi rapporté le souhait de Sberbank de se porter acquéreur de la filiale de Dexia en Turquie : Denizbank. Cependant, Sberbank a récemment indiqué renoncer à cette acquisition, découragée par le prix élevé demandé (5,3 mds d’USD) et aussi par la crainte de se voir opposer un refus de la part du régulateur turc.

Au-delà des rumeurs, ce qui est certain, c’est que nous assistons depuis quelques mois à une retraite massive des banques de la zone euro, du marché russe de la banque de détail.
Un marché pourtant des plus prometteurs en termes de croissance. Qu’il suffise ici de citer un chiffre : seulement 24 % des foyers russes possèderaient un compte bancaire (Sources : Crédit Suisse / Bloomberg Businessweek).Cette retraite des banques européennes du marché russe de la banque de détail  est donc pour nous l’occasion de faire le point sur les forces en présence et de dresser à destination des investisseurs intéressés par le marché russe, un panorama du secteur bancaire russe, à l’heure où sont publiés les résultats au troisième trimestre 2011.

SMI21 – Key people mentioned in Russian media – Monthly Review – May 2013

Our monthly quantitative review of the Russian Mass Media (SMI21) tells you who are the personnalities who made the headlines in the past month. We hope it will interest you.

For most organisations, knowing the big stories of the past month this is not enough. What’s really useful is detecting in advance the small stories that could become next month headlines in a particular sector (Energy, Agriculture, Industry, Politics, …), the weak signal.

27 May (Webinar) Russia Energy Focus – Gazprom and Rosneft

Register now for our next Web Seminar, with a focus on Energy in Russia with the example of analysing Gazprom and Rosneft general ecosystem. It will take place on the 27th of May (10AM London, 11AM Paris, 13AM Moscow).

Infographic : 2013-05-27_Gazprom_Rosneft.pdf ; 2013-05-27_Gazprom_Rosneft2.pdf

Why it’s important?

Energy demand in emerging economies is increasing rapidly, particularly in China and India, and, according to the IEA2, this could result in global energy demand increasing by 40% between 2009-35, It is estimated that 90% of the growth in energy demand over this period will be in the non-OECD countries and that the absolute growth in natural gas demand will be nearly equal to that of oil and coal combined, with trade in natural gas nearly doubling. Estimates indicate that global investments of some $38 trillion in energy infrastructure are required over this period.
This will have implications for both Russia and the EU. The EU will account for a shrinking share of global fossil fuel markets. Emerging economies, particularly to the east, will become more prominent in Russian exports. Domestic factors also come into play, with the contribution of oil and gas to Russia’s GDP expected to decline from 24% in 2011 to 15% in 2035. In the EU, the transition to a low-carbon energy system will limit the growth in the use of fossil fuels.

Price volatility in oil and also in gas markets has increased over the past decade. Shale gas and other unconventional oil and gas sources have become potential important new sources of supply. The greater use of liquefied natural gas (LNG) will make gas markets increasingly global with transport more independent of pipelines.

The French White Paper on defence and national security, 2013 | Excerpts on Russia

Yesterday, the French White Paper on defence and national security (2013) was released for publication.

Excerpts on Russia

The fast growth of Russia’s military expenditure and Energy as a major geopolitical concern of Russia, demonstrate Russia’s intent to reassert its economic and military power. In such context, the relationship of Russia with European countries can only be contrasted.

With France, the relationship with Russia varies from active cooperation (military equipments, logistical cooperation during Afghanistan retreat), convergence of views (Mali, Afghanistan) and divergence of views (Syria).

The subtle balance between those different dimensions of the relationships with Russia, for France but also the European Union, is there to last.

France political goal for the next NATO Summit in Chicago is to support stronger cooperation with Russia.

Since the European Union is a neighbour of Russia, some EU members share a common border. The reinforcement of stability of the Eastern European countries, based on cooperation with Russia according to the principles solemnly proclaimed twenty years ago by the Charte de Paris, is a key concern for the security of Europe, consequently of France.

Original excepts in French

Le budget militaire de la Russie est en croissance rapide. 

La question énergétique est désormais un enjeu majeur de la politique étrangère russe.

Ces évolutions attestent que la Russie se donne les moyens économiques et militaires d’une politique de puissance.

Dans un tel contexte, les relations [de la Russie] avec les pays de l’Union européenne ne peuvent qu’être contrastées.

Avec la France, les relations conjuguent des dimensions de coopération (équipements militaires, appui logistique lors du retrait d’Afghanistan), des convergences (Mali, Afghanistan) et des divergences (Syrie).

Le difficile équilibre qui prévaut aujourd’hui, pour la France comme pour l’Europe, entre toutes ces dimensions de la relation avec la Russie est probablement appelé à durer.

La France a fait de la coopération étroite avec Moscou un de ses objectifs politiques pour la déclaration du Sommet de Chicago de l’OTAN.

L’Union européenne est désormais dans une situation de voisinage avec la Russie, certains de ses membres partageant avec elle une frontière commune. La consolidation de la stabilité aux marges orientales de l’Europe, sur la base de relations de coopération avec la Russie dans le cadre des principes solennellement posés il y a plus de vingt ans par la Charte de Paris, est un enjeu essentiel pour la sécurité de l’Europe, et donc de la France.
