Credit Suisse will master the wealthy Russians – Kommersant newspaper No. 186 (6907) dated 10/12/2020

Swiss bank Credit Suisse is expanding its Wealth Management services team for Russian clients with BNP Paribas employees. The Russian market is ranked 10-15th in the world in terms of the number of wealthy clients, but in recent years, local players have strengthened their positions in this segment.

Information about the strengthening of the Russian team of the Wealth Management division at Credit Suisse appeared on, sources of Kommersant confirmed it. In particular, according to one of them, eight former employees of BNP Paribas under the leadership of Nonna Ushenina are transferred to the bank.

The new appointments are in line with Credit Suisse’s focus on UHNWI (Ultra High Net Worth Individuals, wealthy clients with capital exceeding $ 30 million).

The team will work from Geneva. Credit Suisse declined to comment. BNP Paribas did not answer Kommersant. At the end of September, they announced the layoff of about 120 employees in the Geneva office, which was focused on Wealth Management services.

The interest of foreign financial institutions in working with Russian large private capital has noticeably increased in recent years. According to the director of the Swiss FP Wealth Solutions Yuri Yemelin, the main growth and the greatest marginality of the business of private banks is in emerging markets, including the Russian Federation. According to Andrey Babiyan, director of Alfa Capital Wealth, there are about 215 thousand wealthy clients in Russia (including High Net Worth Individuals, HNWI, with a capital of more than $ 1 million), according to this indicator, the country is in the top 15. According to Knight Frank, at the beginning of 2020 the number of UHNWIs was approaching 9 thousand clients (9th in the world).

In 2015–2016, Russia tightened currency and tax legislation, which dampened the interest of global banks in Russian clients. Then, according to Andrei Babiyan, there was an outflow from Western banks. However, Avi Burstin, Chief Executive Officer of Amber Lion (Zuerich), clarifies that since 2017, the rules have gradually become more transparent, and the requirements have become clear.

Bankers associate the desire to work with Russian clients from Switzerland not with the pandemic, but with legal issues.

As Yury Emelin explains, banks avoid a permanent physical presence in Russia “in order not to expose themselves and their employees to the risks of violating Russian laws and licensing requirements.” And in the face of a pandemic in the wealth management industry, many tasks began to be implemented remotely. According to Avi Burstin, this allows banks “to concentrate depository and trading activities in a reliable jurisdiction”, expanding the geography of potential clients.

At the same time, foreign banks will have to withstand intense competition with Russian ones. According to Andrei Babiyan, Russian management companies and investment banks sometimes have a higher expertise than foreign houses. Avi Burstin adds that ecosystem development “allows local players to compete.” At the same time, according to Mikhail Bespalov, an analyst with KSP Capital Asset Management, in terms of the breadth of expertise, “Western managers can surpass Russian competitors due to their global network and access to narrow specialists in local markets in different geographic locations.” As Mr. Emelin admits, in general, “the capabilities of the conditional average Russian bank are significantly inferior to the same conditional average Swiss bank.”

Argentine ADRs climbed to 14% on Wall Street, and country risk fell after 6 increases in a row

“There was no specific catalyst to explain the rebound. I think the dynamics will be up and down, with smaller volumes. It happens that one day three funds buy everything and you go up, while another day the opposite happens. Argentina came with many consecutive falls, so everything was very cheap on Wall Street ”, Rafael Di Giorno, director of Proficio Investment, remarked to Ámbito.

For his part, Joaquín Candia, an analyst at Rava, recalled that “we must not lose sight of the fact that the underlying situation did not change and that having fallen so much in a short time, prices began to become more attractive for investors more prone to risk, as this style can rebound over time. “

The rises in ADRs were so strong this Thursday that not even the sudden decline in the CCL dollar prevented the S&P Merval de Bolsas y Mercados Argentinos (BYMA) stock index will end higher. The leading panel managed to close with an increase of 2.2%, to 41,875 units.

In this way, the most important increases of the day were recorded by the Galicia shares (+ 7.2%); Supervielle (+ 6.9%); and Transportadora de Gas del Norte (+ 6.5%).

In the local market, the lack of volume is the main characteristic with significant fluctuations in most of the contributors, they stand out at the tables, beyond the fact that this Thursday a rebound was observed: $ 1,336 million were traded, 44% more than on Wednesday . That amount was half of what was negotiated in CEDEAR, which reached $ 2,635 million.

After the restructuring of some 100,000 million dollars with creditors, the market focuses on the negotiation of another millionaire debt (about 44,000 million dollars) with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

In that sense, the IMF spokesman, Gerry Rice, said Thursday that the agency maintains a “very fluid and constructive dialogue” with the Argentine authorities and is working on a plan for a visit by its staff in early October.

Beyond the rise of this Thursday, the Argentine financial market shows concern after economic indicators that raise doubts for the future, despite a recent successful swap of sovereign debt for some US $ 100 billion whose effect quickly faded.

INDEC reported this week a historic drop in GDP of 19.1% year-on-year in the second quarter and an increase in the unemployment rate to 13.1%, as a result of the effects of the pandemic and quarantine, which adds up high inflation and recent obstacles imposed by the Central Bank (BCRA) on the exchange market in an attempt to preserve its reserves.

On the external front, on the other hand, The main American indices posted slight increases after a volatile session, in which the shares of the technology sector managed to recover from the falls of recent days. In this way the Nasdaq (+ 0.4%) led the rises, in a day in which it was known that the requests for unemployment insurance amounted to 870 thousand requests, slightly above market expectations.

Bonds and country risk

In the fixed income segment, and like stocks, the new exchange bonds closed unevenly, with increases in the versions in pesos and a majority of decreases among those nominated in dollars.

A better performance was observed for the bonds issued under local law. In any case, at the end of the round “there was no clear preference for specific legislation since the outlook is quite uncertain and neither was the mission announced by the IMF for October in the country a sufficiently important driver for investors to fully resume confidence in local assets, “Candia said.

Beyond this rebound, Argentine securities maintain high rates due to the risk associated with the Argentine macroeconomic situation.

After six consecutive raises, the Argentina’s country risk, of the JP Morgan bank, fell 2.9% to 1,350 basis points. On Wednesday it had exceeded 1,400 points intraday.
