The bulk of Gennady Timchenko's wealth is derived from energy holdings. His biggest asset is a 45 percent stake in Gunvor Group, the fourth-largest oil trader in the world. He also holds stakes in Novatek, Russia's second-largest gas producer after Gazprom, and Sibur, Russia's largest chemical manufacturer.
China is prepared to finance most of Russia’s largest liquefied natural gas project, Yamal in the Arctic, according to billionaire Gennady Timchenko, a shareholder in OAO Novatek, which controls the deposit.
Present and past owners of OAO Bank Rossiya, the only company hit with sanctions for Russia’s takeover of Crimea, include three billionaires, two proteges of a Nobel Laureate and, according to a Spanish prosecutor, one possible mob boss.
