Russian Direct Investment Fund status change will not affect Fund partners and strategy - CEO Dmitriev

TASS, 28.03.2016

Transfer of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) to the government represented by the Russian Property Management Agency will not affect Fund partners and its strategy, Chief Executive of the Fund Kirill Dmitriev said on Monday.

"This will not influence on the existing partnership at all; everything will continue within the framework of the new structure. All our partnerships and relations will migrate to a new status and there will be no difference for our partners at all. Furthermore, they will understand that we will have a similar status [sovereign fund - TASS] as they have. We also do not see the need to adjust our strategy in this case," Dmitriev said.
