Oleg Tinkov sold his stake in the financial marketplace Sravni.ru to Baring Vostok and Goldman Sachs funds. The amount of the transaction and the shares of shareholders were not disclosed.

Sravni.ru in 2009 was founded by Albert Popkov. In 2014, the project attracted investments from Tinkoff Digital, the owners of which are Tinkov and Goldman Sachs.

At that time the sources of RBC in the market, which were familiar with the details of the transaction, estimated the service at $5 million. According to one of them, Tinkoff Digital acquired a controlling stake and an option to increase its stake in the company.

Alexey Solovyov, Managing Director of A Partners investment company, noted in a conversation with Vedomosti that there had been hardly any “strong synergistic effects” between Tinkoff Digital and Sravni.ru, so the exit of the investor was unlikely to negatively affect the business.
