CHICAGO - Thursday, March 31st 2016 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Chicago-based RMB Capital (“RMB”), an independent financial services firm with more than $4.3 billion in assets under management, announced today that Egor Rybakov, CFA, has joined RMB Asset Management as a senior vice president and portfolio manager. Rybakov brings to RMB the investment process he has honed for the past two decades—screening the universe of international equities to uncover mispriced quality companies expected to create long-term value. With the addition of Rybakov, RMB will ultimately be able to offer a variety of new international and global strategies—the first being a concentrated portfolio of non-U.S. companies across the market-cap spectrum.
“Bringing Egor on board is an exciting and meaningful development,” said Chris Graff, partner and director of RMB Asset Management. “His research experience, fundamental approach, and focused investment process further expand our firm’s stock-picking capabilities. We now cover the globe.”
Adds Rybakov, “I’m very happy to be joining a dynamic and growing investment group whose approach and philosophy are so closely aligned with mine. Throughout my career, I have focused on discovering mispriced quality companies with durable operations, strong financials, and prudent management teams. Such businesses typically outperform over the long term. My disciplined and time-tested investment process balances pursuit for future value creation with downside protection, offering opportunities for savvy investors to gain exposure to international markets in a prudent manner.”
Prior to joining RMB, Rybakov was senior vice president and portfolio manager at Keeley Asset Management’s global equities practice. Previously, he held international equity portfolio management and research positions at a number of firms, including ENR Investments, Principal Global Investors/EDGE AM, affiliates of Nuveen Investments – Tradewinds Global Investors & SBAM, as well as Thornburg Investment Management. Rybakov holds a bachelor’s degree in economics and management from the Moscow State University (MGU) and an MBA with concentrations in finance and accounting from The University of Illinois at Chicago. He is based in Newport Beach, Calif., where RMB has established a satellite office.
