automotive credentials

We have a wealth of experience in all sectors of the automotive industry, both globally and in the Russian market.

Partners and Board members have been responsible for establishing and operating Trinity Motors, the first distributor for General Motors in the FSU, setting up and running RAC, a leading manufacturer and supplier of components, and managing BMW's Russian manufacturing operations.

In addition, partners and Board members have held senior positions in General Motors and Renault-Nissan among others, and have advised on many landmark deals and cross-border M&As, including the 2001 JV between GM and AvtoVaz, the 2006 acquisition of LDV by GAZ, the 2007 JV between Isuzu and Sollers and in 2008 the $1 billion USD sale of 25% of AvtoVaz to Renault.

SICP has also acquired and successfully restructured Delta, a leading Finnish distributor of KIA and Mitsubishi, with 25 dealership outlets. In 2018 we successfully divested the distribution division of Delta.

We have also invested in the IAL Group, a leasing and fleet management company operating throughout Russia.
