Further conditions of access to the Equity Market for non-resident clients

Moscow Exchange would like to highlight the expansion of the list of securities of strategic and a number of other companies that are subject to trading restrictions[1] by non-resident clients controlled by Russian legal entities or individuals[2].

The list is for information purposes, is not final and cannot serve as the only source of information on the list of restricted companies.

From 12 September 2022, non-resident clients from countries other than unfriendly ones as well as non-residents controlled by Russian legal entities or individuals, will be able to operate on the MOEX Equity Market[2].

Trading members should note the need for additional verification procedures to be carried out if there are grounds for regulatory compliance. To provide access to non-resident clients, brokers must identify clients and their controlling persons as well as provide additional client details upon registration or making amendments to the details provided upon registration. Where such additional information is not available, non-resident clients will not be able to trade on the Equity Market. For more details, please check out the PDF.

Please also keep in mind that special rules exist for the settlement of physically delivered single stock futures contracts by non-resident clients.

[1] In accordance with paragraph 2 of Presidential Decree No. 520.
