BCS Financial Group Taps New Chief Economist

Jun 4 2014 | 6:32am ET

BCS Financial Group, the largest trader of equities and FX on Russian exchanges, has appointed Vladimir Tikhomirov as its new chief economist.

Tikhomirov had held the same post at Otkritie Financial Corporation since 2010. Prior to that he'd been chief economist at URALSIB Financial Corporation and NIKOIL Brokerage, which he joined in 2001. Tikhomirov moved into the finance sector after a 20-year academic career.

Said Joseph Dayan, executive director and head of markets at BCS, in a statement:

“As BCS continues to expand we have made a number of strategic hires that will help develop our offering and provide direction for the business. Dr Tikhomirov is one of these who brings a huge wealth of knowledge about Russian and CIS markets, he will be a great asset to the team and lend his weight to helping BCS grow and mature its research capabilities.”
