O1 Group acquires 100% share in Obrazovanie non-state pension fund

16 June 2016. O1 Group and AVS Group are proud to announce the closure of the transaction to sell 100% of the shares in the Joint Stock Company Private Pension Fund “Obrazovanie” to O1 Group. Approval from the RF Central Bank for the transaction on the fund’s share purchase by О1 Group was granted on 3 June 2016. 

The change of the sole shareholder of Private Pension Fund “Obrazovanie” will not affect the terms and conditions of current pension plans. All terms and conditions, including those of calculation and accrual of the investment income and collection of pensions and redemption amounts will continue in full force and effect.

As a result of the deal, the total pension assets under management of the funds that belong to O1 Group will comprise RUR 242 billion (as of 31 March 2016), with a total of 4 million insured (as of 31 March 2016). The group currently combines three private pension funds from the list of TOP-20 entities, operating both in compulsory pension insurance and non-government pension insurance systems and prepared based on different indices (as of 31 March 2016), including Private Pension Fund “BUDUSCHEE” (formerly: Private Pension Fund “BLAGOSOSTOYANIE OPS”, merged with Private Pension Fund “Stalfond” on 10 March 2016), Private Pension Fund “Telekom-Soyuz”, and Private Pension Fund “Uralsib”. The O1 Group’s share of the pension services market comprises approximately 13% in terms of the number of insured and over 12% in terms of total pension savings (as of 31 March 2016). 

According to Dmitry Mints, a member of the Management Board of O1 Group, “O1 Groups treats pension funds management as one of the strategic lines of its business development. The Group continues to build up its asset portfolio, improve its service quality, and strengthen its leading positions on the Russian market. Following the major purchase transaction of Private Pension Fund “URALSIB” closed in March 2016, today’s transaction with Private Pension Fund ‘’Obrazovanie” is another stage in the implementation of our business strategy. Our group has acquired as many as four insurance funds to date and we have the necessary experience to ensure management of such a large business representing a material component of the national pension industry and guarantee its successful development considering the customer base scales and complying with the strict standards adopted by the market today”. 

“During the past 15 years of its existence and operation, JSC Private Pension Fund “Obrazovanie” has gained a reputation as a reliable partner in the implementation of pension plans for corporations, budget institutions, and individuals. “’Obrazovanie’ is a leading regional private pension fund”, said Andrey Stankevich, VP for Corporate Relations of Investment
Company “AVS Group”. “However, today we have elected to focus on other areas and, as such, to transfer control of the Fund to our major participant that specializes in pension fund management, i.e. to O1 Group. We are confident that this deal will bring additional benefits and added value to the customers of JSC Private Pension Fund “Obrazovanie”.
