Moscow Exchange Group manages Russia’s main trading platform for equities, bonds, derivative instruments, currencies, money market instruments and commodities. The Group includes Russia’s central securities depository (National Settlement Depository) and a clearing centre (National Clearing Centre) that perform the functions of a central counterparty on the markets. Moscow Exchange offers its clients the full spectrum of trading and post-trade services, as well as a wide range of information services.
Moscow Exchange was formed in December 2011 from a merger of Russia's two main exchange groups: MICEX Group, the oldest domestic exchange and operator of the leading equities, bonds, foreign exchange and money markets in Russia; and RTS Group, which at that time operated Russia's leading derivatives market. This combination created a vertically integrated exchange for trading of all major asset classes. In February 2013, Moscow Exchange completed an initial public offering on its own platform (ticker: MOEX). As of 31 December 2016, the company’s market capitalisation was RUB 286.2 billion, and the free float was 62.4%.
