Fund II expects to invest in the following sectors positioned with sustainable underlying growth drivers for long-term growth:

Financial Infrastructure and Payment Processing
Financial markets in Russia and Kazakhstan are the most developed among the EEU countries, yet they still lag behind developed economies in the sophistication and maturity of their financial infrastructure. As they become increasingly integrated into global capital markets, these markets, which are backed by strong government support, are likely to provide significant investment opportunities.

Business and IT Services
Russia and other EEU countries have deep technical talent priced competitively vis-à-vis that in developed economies, which positions them as attractive locations for the provision of business and IT services to global customers. Additionally, the Russian economy is expected to sustain growing demand for sophisticated business and IT services. 

Consumer Services
Russia and other EEU countries are currently experiencing a rapid expansion of their consumer sectors due to increasing wages and strong spending habits. The expansion of this new consumer class is likely to provide significant investment opportunities in companies providing consumer services, such as online payment systems and insurance providers.
