Subject. The article investigates the consolidation of investments in Russian fixed assets.
Objectives. The purpose of the study is to identify conditions for the consolidation of investments in Russian fixed capital.
Methods. The study draws on the systems approach, using the methods of statistical, neural network, and cluster analysis.
Results. I reveal conditions for consolidation of investments in Russian fixed capital, i.e. private and foreign property, burdened with funds from the issue of corporate bonds and shares. The paper identifies a significant part of the Russian economy (mining activities) and unveils the high-tech imports domination. It highlights conditions for consolidation of investments in Russian fixed capital in the form of private and foreign property, which determine the parameters of international cooperation in US dollars and in the national currency, avoiding an excessive increase in gross government debt in the national currency.
Conclusions. The described conditions for consolidation of investments in Russian fixed assets enable to direct the activities of the Russian government to effective combination of external and internal factors that ensure economic growth.
