RBC Group of Companies
Who we are
The RBC Group operates on the mass media (an information agency, business television channel RBC TV, online newspapers, and marketing communications) and IT (RBC SOFT) markets.
RBC's news strategy is based on the principle that only primary sources of information are proven reliable. RBC provides its clients with all necessary information and creates cutting-edge technological ways of delivering it. Our main goal is to foster Russia's integration into the global information and economic community with the help of hi-tech solutions.
Our success is the best form of proof that Russian businesses are capable of meeting postindustrial economic standards without any support from the government or big businesses.
Whom we work for
Everything we do is for those who play a key role in the establishment of modern Russia, i.e. those counting on themselves, on their intellect, talents, knowledge and workability. RBC provides them with information and technology that helps them to succeed.
Our core audience is represented by people with higher education and above-average incomes. These people understand what they are looking for, know how to achieve their goals, analyze risks and are familiar with ways of minimizing them. RBC's media business reaches the largest business audience in Russia, which makes the company a unique advertising platform.
