Forex in Russia: a growing market
According to the research “Forex-brokers rating in Russia 2014” of Interfax-CEA, reported by the Congress organizer, the total amount of the deposits attracted by the forex brokers by the end of 2014 was about $0,5 billion. About 400,000 persons in the Russian Federation used the services of forex-brokers. Their total average monthly turnover in 2014 was about $350 billion.
The organizer of the FX Congress is the CRFIN, Centre for Regulation in OTC Financial Instruments and Technologies, a non-profit self-regulated partnership aimed to make the retail off-exchange Forex market a rightful member of the Russian financial industry. As we can read on the congress’ website, this event is a way for the CRFIN to promote the Forex Market in Russia: “Accepting the profile law by the State Duma of the Russian Federation sets a serious goal for market participants – to start working in a legal field of the Russian Federation. Positive changes will allow companies achieve an entirely new level of service, will create safe competitive environment, supported by standards and rules of professional activity and will strengthen clients’ trust to investments on the Forex market.”
