MergingThe merged asset management businesses of Russian firms Troika Dialog and Sberbank will be renamed Sberbank Asset Management. The company will offer four new funds – an equity, a bond, a mixed and a precious metals fund – which are aimed at clients with a low appetite for risk. The company will continue to offer Troika Dialog's product line.
