Two years ago Oleg Boyko’s core business was Ritzio – a company that operates gaming networks. Since the gaming ban in 2009 Ritzio targets international markets only (casinos and gaming clubs in Germany, Italy, Belarus, Romania, Croatia and Latvia). In Russia Boyko acquired a perfume and cosmetics retailer Rive Gauche, and then expanded it with 32 Douglas Rivoli stores, the Russian branch of German’s Douglas Holding. Finstar Holding also manages a food retail chain Mindal and a commercial real estate developer Finstroy.
