Russia’s Forex organizations CRFIN and KROUFR seal partnership

As the Russian Forex industry comes closer to the implementation of the bulk of provisions of the Forex law, two of Russia’s Forex organizations have teamed up to set the stage for the new legislative piece.

The Commission for the regulation of relations on the financial market (KROUFR) and the Centre for Regulation in OTC Financial Instruments and Technologies (CRFIN) have earlier today announced a partnership agreement. The main aim of the collaboration is to make the work of both organizations more efficient when it comes to regulating and setting the standards for Russia’s FX industry.

CRFIN was registered as a self-regulatory organization in June 2011. Vadim Alexandrovich Vinogradov, doctor of law, is currently Chairman of CRFIN’s Governing Board.

Since October 2013, Alexander Kuryashkin, who has a PhD in sociology, has been President of KROUFR.

Alexander Kuryashkin commented on the partnership:

“KROUFR aims to make Russia’s Forex market more accessible, open and civilized. In this respect, our goals coincide with those of CRFIN. I am confident that our co-operation will help all participants in the FX market, who promote its effective and transparent work”.
