Boris Jordan, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Renaissance Insurance, said:
“Renaissance Insurance today becomes the first Russian insurer to complete a fully marketed international IPO. Our offering attracted interest from a broad range of institutional investors from around the world keen to gain exposure to a digitally enabled pioneer in the fast evolving Russian insurance market, as well as strong interest from domestic Russian individual investors, many of whom already know and believe in us as customers. I am confident that as a public company Renaissance Insurance will meet the high expectations of all our stakeholders. We have already taken steps to ensure that we are following global best practices in all key areas, including introducing an LTI programme that aligns management interests with those of investors, bringing in highly qualified independent directors to the Board and approving a dividend policy that aims to pay out 50% of net profit starting from 2022. By pricing our Offering competitively, we have left plenty of money on the table and create a solid foundation for long-term share price appreciation and growth of shareholder value. I am pleased to welcome all of our new investors alongside our established and committed long-term shareholders, and look forward to sharing with them Renaissance Insurance’s journey as a public company.”Offering highlights
