We’re thrilled that one of the largest US electronic brokers is offering their clients access to trading on Moscow Exchange. Interactive Brokers executes more than 840,000 trades per day, and has long been known for its superior technology and global footprint. It is only natural that the firm’s clients should have access to trading in Moscow Exchange products.

Providing access to Russian financial market for non-residents is a strategic priority of Raiffeisenbank. Our partnership with Interactive Brokers means that now more than half million international investors have the possibility to trade on MOEX. We hope it will lead to increasing trading volumes in a wide range of Russian equities and investments into the Russian economy. We are one of only a few foreign banks offering access to the Russian market to non-residents, and we are delighted to partner with one of the biggest electronic brokers in the world.
