"Rosatom" renews pensions

The oligarch's structures were included in the AtomGarant NPF.
The structure of the company "Renova" Viktor Vekselberg was one of the founders of the non-state pension fund (NPF) "AtomGarant". After the foundation of the fund, along with the "daughters" of Rosatom, it will become its co-owner, and, indirectly, also co-owner of another sectoral NPF, Atomfond. However, the changed market conditions may prompt the group to sell pension assets.

One of the founders of the NPF AtomGarant, the fund that forms corporate pension programs (non-government pension funds, NGOs) of the nuclear industry enterprises, turned out to be structures of the Renova group of Viktor Vekselberg, according to the materials of the NPF. The contribution of Pension Savings Company, which belongs to Renova, is 31.6% of the total contribution of all founders of the fund (36% of the votes are on the Pension Fund's representatives). Other significant founders are Rosenergoatom Concern (49.9%) and Atomenergoprom (7.2%). Atomgarant is almost 100% owned by Atomfond, which works with its clients on compulsory pension insurance (FSA), and the members of the board of directors also include representatives of Pension Accumulations.

At the end of June, the council of Atomgarant took a decision to privatize. The requirement to distribute in favor of the founders has already been received from Rosenergoatom, Atomenergoprom, the Russian Trade Union of Workers of Atomic Energy and Industry, and Pension Accumulations. Thus, the structures of Renova will directly become the owner of the stake in Atomgarant and indirectly in Atomfond. Both funds did not answer the question of Kommersant, whether they will be merged after the end of the corporatization of Atomgarant.

The volume of pension reserves of NPF Atomgarant at the end of the first quarter was 10.4 billion rubles. The volume of Atomfond's accumulations exceeded 6.5 billion rubles. For the transition campaign of last year, the Fund received 7 thousand new customers from 515.2 million rubles. accumulation.

The Renova Group owns two more non-state pension funds - the non-government pension fund (MNPF) Bolshoi (at the end of the first quarter, the obligations on the OPS - 35.7 billion rubles, for NGOs - 3 billion rubles) and NPF "Vladimir" ( liabilities for the TSO - 1.8 billion rubles, for NGOs - 3 billion rubles.) At the same time, the structures of "Renova" became the founders of "Atomgarant", apparently, long ago - in 2015 a number of representatives of the group were already members of the NPF Council. The Pension Savings Company, which manages the MNPF "Bolshoi" and the Vladimir Fund, also manages Atomgarant's funds. In September, 2016, Forbes wrote that Atomgarant's investments are similar to those of Bolshoy and Vladimir, in particular NPF atomic scientists invested pension funds of clients in the company T Plus (owned by Renova) and Rusnano.

"Renova developed a retirement business focused on that part of large Russian business, which for some reason does not want to create its captive APF for corporate programs of its employees," says the managing director of Expert RA Pavel Mitrofanov. In this case, the fund of nuclear scientists fits into the logic of the group's business development, he believes.

Now, expectations about the pension industry have changed - including for NGOs, because of the general uncertainty in the market for the introduction of individual pension capital, Mr. Mitrofanov notes. Renova, apparently, was disappointed in the pension business, two sources told Kommersant, who are familiar with the course of M & A transactions in the pension market. "They have long been willing to get rid of their funds," one of the interlocutors of Kommersant says. According to another source, "Kommersant", in particular, the group offered Sberbank NPF to buy "Big" for less than 15% of the fund's assets. "In the block" Wealth Management "of the Savings Bank, on average once a week there are proposals for the purchase of various financial organizations, including NPF. Our policy is not to comment on such appeals. At present, we have no transactions to sell in this sector, "said Alexander Bondarenko, senior vice president of Sberbank. In Renova and its funds, as well as in Rosatom, they did not respond to a request from Kommersant.
