Kirill Dmitriev, chief executive officer of RDIF, Russia's sovereign wealth fund, highlighted the idea that the economic and political benefits would be felt more widely than within his homeland.
In an email to CNBC, Dmitriev said "We believe that election of President Trump will be positive not only for the Russian market but that worldwide markets will restore quickly and will the appreciate pragmatic, growth oriented approach of President Trump."
"Trump's focus on win-win solutions, ability to rethink old dogmas and create proper incentives for growth, cooperation and prosperity will be positive for the world economy," he continued.
Furthermore, Dmitriev sees upside for the global economy and business as a result of the election of the U.S.'s new leader.
"Trump's business background will lead to greater efficiency of U.S. economy and institutions to focus on job creation and better cooperation with other nations through a more pragmatic and honest approach."
Charles Robertson, global chief economist at emerging markets investment bank Renaissance Capital, also sees upside potential for Russia's economy, despite a possible short-term hitch.
According to Robertson in an email to CNBC, "Trump has been keen to promote U.S. commodity production, such as coal, so we imagine in the longer-term his election will constrain an increase in commodity prices."
"But in the shorter to medium-term, the possible removal of sanctions will enable Russia to invest more and grow faster. Global investors have been surprised by the improvement in Russia's economy this year (it shrank by around 0.5 percent while many thought it would shrink 2 percent) and we think growth will be closer to 2 percent in 2017 than the 1 percent assumed by consensus," he added.
