(1996-2005)

Renaissance Capital

Shipston was the founding venture investor in Renaissance Capital, Russia’s largest and leading investment company. The company was launched by a group of international investors tasked by Boris Yestsin with privatizing Russia. Operating in high-opportunity emerging markets, including Africa, Central and Eastern Europe, and Russia, the company generated $150 million in profits within three years. In 2005, Shipston exited the Russian market and sold its remaining interests back to Renaissance Capital.
