Interros Capital is a Russia-based conglomerate controlled by Russian oligarch Vladimir Potanin. It is a previous shareholder of Rosbank, which is a Russian universal bank.

The deal, which was announced in April 2022, was closed after its terms were approved by the Russian government commission for the control of foreign investment.

SocGen said that the sale will result in a net loss of nearly €3.2 billion.
