Amanah Capital Group Limited (ACGL) has opened a representative office in Kazan headed by Branch Manager Ajay Nair, a move intended to engage more with the opportunities available in Tatarstan and the Russian Federation.
Kamarul Zamri, ACGL Vice President of International Business will oversee operations of the Kazan office.
Based in Malaysia and specializing in corporate advisory and business consulting, the company has been playing an increasingly active role in Tatarstan since signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the TatarstanInvestment Development Agency at Kazan Summit: VI International Summit on Economic Coperation of the Russian Federation and OIC Countries in May 2012.
ACGL subsequently became the lead advisor of the international consortium responsible for preparing the master plan for Kazan Smart City, along with AJM Planning & Urban Development Group, Straits Consulting Engineers, and Tatinvestgrazhdanproekt.
The company has also been an ally for TIDA in facilitating foreign investment into Tatarstan. ACGL played a key role in attracting a Malaysian investor from the medical industry to Kazan and Radiance Hospitality Group, a Singaporean firm that has committed to building a transit hotel and Hospitality, Tourism and Management University in Kazan Smart City.
“The opening of this representative office in Kazan is an important indicator of the vitality and vibrancy of Tatarstan’s business climate,” explained TIDA Chief Executive Linar Yakupov. “We are pleased that Amanah Capital Group has chosen our capital of Kazan for its first overseasoffice in Russia.”
“ACGL will continue to use Kazan as the center for its Russian operations due to its favorable business environment and good infrastructure,” added Kamarul Zamri.
