Russia’s wealth creators: Facing the challenges of succession and wealth management
Price: 100.00

Exploring three major dynamics of the Russian entrepreneurial experience: business development, family participation and wealth management. 

The UBS/Campden Wealth report on Russia’s entrepreneurs has reached its fourth year of publication. This year’s findings reveal, among other facts, Russian entrepreneurs’ efforts to grow or at least preserve their wealth in a difficult global economic environment.

"Russia’s business environment is often understood, at least from the perspective of a foreign observer, in the context of the billionaire oligarchs that control large swathes of the country’s industry. Although these individuals and families are still very powerful, an entrepreneurial class has risen in recent years similar to their counterparts in the west," said David Bain, Head of Research at Campden Wealth.

The goal of this study is to capture a sense of significant Russian entrepreneurs’ perspectives on the critical issues they, their companies and their families face in
managing and building their businesses and wealth. This study provides insights into the issues that keep these entrepreneurs awake at night, including current business dynamics and future plans.
