All announced data was intended to assure the Italian investors, the number of which in the university exceeded four hundred, that the Russian financial market is not worse the Italian one, and sometimes surpasses it in its capabilities. Financial investments in Russia and entering of Italian companies the Russian stock exchange are two topics that became the cornerstones at the Forum.

The importance of the data was proved both by the Russian side, represented by Alexander Nurizade, General Consul of the Russian Federation; Anna Vasilenko, Head of Primary Markets, “Moscow Exchange”; Andrey Shemetov, Deputy Chairman of the Board, “Moscow Exchange”; Svetlana Chupsheva, Corporate Director of the Strategic Initiatives Agency; and the Italian side, represented by the scientific board of the University and the research group, headed by professor Maurizio Dallocchio. The optimistic viewpoint was also shared by the invited guests of the Forum, the representatives of Pietro Barbaro SPA, Indesit, Damiani, UniCredit, Amplifon, Ani and many others.

The representatives of Moscow Exchange in the framework of the Forum expressed plans on start-up of the premium segment for the companies with higher level of corporate management, which will increase the share of foreign investment in Russian economy. According to Vincenzo Trani, Chairman of of the Board of Directors, General Invest, increase in the volume of foreign investment in Russia is caused by the increased information awareness which is still insufficient nowadays.

Chairman of the Board of Directors of General Invest Vincenzo Trani stressed the importance of the initiation and organization of such events that strengthen the relationship between Russia and Italy, as well as the response of Italian investors, which is evident to General Invest from the very first forum.
