Foreign Companies Listing

Foreign companies may be able to list on Russia's stock exchanges before 2015 if a new strategy outlined by MICEX-RTS is realized, Gazeta.ru reported.

At present, legislation permits only Russian companies to trade on Moscow's bourses. The entrance of foreign firms is part of the push to turn Moscow into an international financial center.

The goal is one of many outlined under a development plan for the newly merged exchanges that also suggested that T+3 trading be introduced toward the end of this year, giving traders three days to settle after buying or selling, thus allowing them to trade assets they do not physically own. It is used on the majority of the world's major bourses. An additional trading session between 7 and 11:50 p.m. may also be introduced.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
