Who’s funding Martin Engstroem’s new festival?main
Latvian media have been trying to get answers out of Petr Aven, a Russian oligarch banker, as to the extent of his involvement in a new festival started by Verbier founder Martin Engstroem.
Russian Wikipedia has Aven listed as the 19th richest man in Russia. He is half-Latvian and head of Russia’s largest private bank.
And a great philanthropist.
