ABA supports 3000th company to locate in Austria

Vienna home to its first foreign subsidiary

The National Rating Agency, NRA International GmbH, which is the second largest private Russian rating agency, is based in the building which used to be the location of the Vienna Stock Exchange. It aims to expand to Eastern European markets. “We selected Austria due to the fact that the central location as well as the good infrastructure and the unmatched CEE know-how are key factors for us. We would like to expand to the European market from our base in Austria”, says Victor Chetverikov, CEO of the National Rating Agency. The company focuses on the field of economic research, and its team of 30 scientists offers sound analyses for Russian regions and industries. Ratings are only offered in Russia at the present time. The application to the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) for a European license for ratings is in preparation.
