He was proven as a use­ful pro­pri­etor of KazStroyService International BV, an orga­ni­za­tion man­aged by Tiku, LN Mittal, Timur Kulibaev and Goldman Sachs.

The Indian Express inde­pen­dent­ly cor­rob­o­rat­ed it. The 2013 Annual Report of UK vital­i­ty firm Nostrum Oil and Fuel high­lights KSS International as an enti­ty not direct­ly man­aged by the 4, and because the use­ful hold­er of 26.6 per cent of the UK firm.
