From 2004 to 2006 headed the Federal agency of the inventory of a real estate.

In 2007-2008 directed Federal agency on management of special economic zones.

2008: President of UFG Group. The total revenues of family for several years in tens of millions of dollars

In March, 2008 it was appointed to the position of the president of UFG group (OFG Invest) – one of the largest companies working in Russia in the field of asset management, direct investments and also mutual investment funds together with Deutsche Bank.

Mishustin became the president of UFG Capital Partners and the managing partner of UFG Asset Management who are included into UFG group. As the partner it was entered into the list of owners from shares of 25% in the funds which are already created at that time, and during creation of new funds also became the founder from shares of 25%.

Partners then developed joint plans for future business development. The decision was made that in addition to participation in development of the existing directions Mikhail Mishustin will also supervise expansion of the international presence of UFG, development of venture investment and technology investments and also infrastructure and agricultural projects.

The agricultural project in Bryansk "UFG agro Partnery" in which the company began to invest in May, 2008 was one of projects which were kept by Mikhail Mishustin. There was an abandoned, dumetose earth. And we for several years on 38 thousand hectares organized high-tech agroproduction of wheat, barley, soy. The company was one of the largest taxpayers in the region and one of the key enterprises creating jobs. More than $30 million investments were invested in the project, the zernosushilka is constructed, the equipment purchased, the advanced western agrotechnologies thanks to which it was succeeded to increase more than three times productivity from hectare in comparison with productivity of farmlands in the region are implemented. The advanced pochvosberegayushchy technologies of plowing of the earth and rotation of a harvest were used. Afterwards, in 2014, business was sold to one of the largest Russian agroholdings in Russia with project value addition in a ruble equivalent almost twice. The project was successfully implemented by the potential put by partners at a stage of its formation in 2009.

In April, 2008 for a beneficial ownership all the assets connected with UFG, Mikhail Mishustin founded a family trust. Mikhail Mishustin and his family were beneficiaries of a trust. It is customary practice for partners of large investment companies worldwide.

Through this trust Mishustin owned 25 percent shares in already created at the time of the arrival of funds and during creation of new funds became the founder from shares also of 25%.

Its remuneration as the key head in 2009, for example, was made by about 79 million rubles, or about $2.5 million that was declared by it in 2010. It is important to note that бóльшая a part of this remuneration — bonuses according to transactions which in case of success are significantly higher than salary. It is customary practice of investment companies.

In March, 2010 Mikhail Mishustin accepts the offer to return on public service and fulfills the requirement to government employees about lack of commercial participation in private companies, having given 100% of property of a trust to the spouse Mishustina Vladlen Yurevna with the obligation to partners of UFG about sale of these assets.

("Due to the passing of civil service it is forbidden to the civil servant: participate in management of commercial or non-profit organization, except for the following cases" — Paragraph 1.3 of Article 17 of the Federal law "About the Public Civil Service of the Russian Federation" of 7/27/2004 No. 79-FZ)

However the crisis period proceeded, and once it was impossible to sell all assets in 2010. With respect thereto partners of UFG agreed with Mishustina that will redeem shares from it as on them there are buyers suiting partners of UFG.

I will note also that at the conclusion of transactions about an asset sale of UFG it was necessary to consider the corporate interests of the company (the party, absolutely foreign to us cannot be the buyer). The fact that asset sales were performed to partners of UFG and/or the persons affiliated with them is explained by it. Despite payment by installments of payments to Vladlena Mishustina, upon transition of the property right of her shares to the company it was performed in 2010 at once. The fact that as a part of founders and partners of funds there are no politically significant persons is vital for compliance to internal and external requirements and also standards of supervisory authorities of the different states, investors and partners.

In 2010-2013 Vladlen Mishustin gained income from a trust of UFG and declared it in the amount of $11.55 million in total in four years. Directly in the declaration the amount, of course, was specified in rubles. At the same time declaring was not only the requirement of the Russian legislation, but also the requirement of internal regulations of UFG.

In 2013 the new federal law "about introduction of additional restrictions not only for government employees, but also their spouses and minor children" and with respect thereto Vladlen Mishustin had to transfer the trust to the third party was adopted. But under the terms of the initial agreement with UFG she could not transfer unrealized assets to the stranger in order to avoid risks for the UFG group in general. It in practice of investment funds excludes risks of acquisition of shares by unfriendly shareholders. Therefore the parties made agreed decision to transfer the remained assets of mother and the sister of her spouse — to Mishustina Louise Mikhaylovna and Stenina Natalya Vladimirovna. In August, 2013 the trust is transferred to the possession of new beneficiaries, and already they gain further income from an asset sale.

In 2013-2015 income from Louise Mikhaylovna's UFG was $11.9 million, and Natalya Stenina for the same period of $10.1 million. These amounts are reflected in their declarations in rubles.

Thus, the total amount of income of all three beneficiaries from a trust of UFG from 2010 for 2015 was $33.55 million that at a current rate there correspond 2.15 billion rubles. Any other income which could be received further on converting because of exchange differences, income from the deposits and possible other investments which are not connected with UFG about which I cannot know do not enter this amount.

In the years ahead payments in their address were not made due to the lack of buyers for the remained shares. Only in 2019 the company managed to close the transaction on final sale.

In February, 2009 Mikhail Mishustin entered a talent pool of the Russian President.

2011: An annual income according to the declaration of 24.5 million rub

The amount of the declared income for 2011 was 24.515 million rubles[1][2].
