This is one of a number of strategic hires that will help develop the Russian brokerage’s offering and provide direction for the business. Tikhomirov will drive strategic decisions at the firm and assist in growing the business.

"Tikhomirov is one of [a number of strategic hires] 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," said Joseph Dayan, executive director and head of markets at BCS.
