Yury Denisov, Chief Executive Officer of Moscow Exchange, said:
MOEX has delivered fee and commission income growth significantly ahead of our strategic targets. Key drivers of this growth include the roll-out of new products and instruments, the expansion of trading hours and inflow of new clients. The number of individual investors with accounts on MOEX has now reached 15 million. Before the end of the year we plan to increase the number of global stocks available on our platform to 500 names and to launch a morning trading session for the equity market.
In line with our strategy, we are also successfully growing our business beyond traditional securities exchange offerings. We have acquired the OTC FX trading platform NTPro, we are planning an investment into crowdsourcing platform Potok and we are rolling out new products and services on our personal finance marketplace, Finuslugi. These initiatives expand opportunities for existing clients and allow us to access new types of customers.
