RenCap Opens New Unit

Investment bank Renaissance Capital said it formed a unit for “opportunistic” investments, such as in companies riven by shareholder conflict.

Renaissance Investments plans to make two or three purchases of $30 million to $70 million this year, Yegor Sirota, the fund’s director, said by phone Monday.

Previously, Sirota ran Alfa-Eco/A1 Investments for eight years.
