Altushkin started rolling up his estimated net worth of $1.2 billion when he began trading scrap metals in the early 1990’s. Then he served as the General Director of Ekaterinburg Commerce and Industry Company (1993-2003), Aeron (1996-2003), and Uralelectromed Vortsvetmet, a business he established in 1997 which became the primary provider of scrap and copper to UGMK. In 2002, he was the board member in Revdinskiy Brickyard. From 2003-2007, he was the adviser to the Office of the President of Ural Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Most of Igor Altushkin’s net worth came from RMK, the third-largest copper producer in Russia. But in the spring of 2011, he sold a 20% position to Ruslan Baysarov. The money he made was used to buy giant coal field in Tuva from Sergey Pugachev who’s a former senator. He plans to invest more than $4 billion in the business. Yet, in 2012, he revealed that he just learned that he had a debt of around $2 billion. Then he returned the Tuva field to Pugachev.
