As part of its project realisation, A1 engages in the search and recovery of cash and other assets. The company uses its own and borrowed funds for project financing.
A1 has long-term partnerships with the largest banking and financial industrial groups in Russia. The company’s strategy is aimed at establishing stable competitive businesses, implementing effective corporate governance models and originating new businesses. Alfa-Bank (Russia), TNK, VEON Ltd.
