“Russia is the world’s largest country by area, and has vast natural resources. The country is the largest producer of natural gas in the world, and is among the top producers of oil.”

The Russian equity market has among the lowest valuations globally, for well known reasons. The political development is unsecure and relations with the rest of the world is strained. Corruption is vast. The country is one of the most dependent on the oil price. The expectations for future growth are low, and it will not take much to surprise on the upside.

However, between the years of 2000 and 2008 the economy grew by almost 10% annually. The growth was not led by population or improved productivity. Russia actually has had decreasing population since the fall of the USSR in 1991. The growth has mainly come from increasing commodity prices. The oil price quadrupled at the same time as the Russian companies increased production volumes. The federal budget also gained from increased taxation on the resource sectors.

At Tundra we invest in a few of the most well run companies on the Russian stock exchange. We believe that a lot of well run companies can be found among the small caps, and we are not afraid to invest in them. The fund is run by one of the most experienced Russia teams in Scandinavia.
