Russia's potential Eurobond to depend on U.S. vote, Nov looks more favourable - VTB Capital

Russia's potential issue of a sovereign Eurobond this year will depend on the U.S. election, Andrei Solovyov, global head of debt capital markets at VTB Capital, said on Thursday.

The possible Eurobond placement in November looked more attractive than in December, said Solovyov, after Finance Minister Anton Siluanov did not rule out that Russia would issue a euro-denominated Eurobond before the year-end.

VTB Capital has acted as sole lead manager for Russian Eurobonds in the past.
