The Bank of Russia has upheld restrictions for Russians playing on the stock exchange and do not have special qualifications. It is reported owned by Grigory Berezkin RBC with reference to the latest version of the amendments to the second reading of the bill on the categories of investors.
In the version adopted on first reading contained a clause stating that the Russians are not allowed to invest in foreign securities without special testing. This provoked sharp criticism from brokers and banks, however, the Central Bank has not refused this idea.
The regulator is lobbying hard distribution of investors on the result of this reform, the majority of investors — individuals will lose access to securities of foreign companies, such as Apple, Google (Google), Alibaba, Tesla.
Instead of the skilled and unskilled investors will be four categories: unskilled protected and simple investor, qualified simple and professional investor. Gradation depends on the level of knowledge about the financial markets, as well as the amount of your investment.
Of all the investment instruments for ordinary Russians will leave only the most reliable Russian assets — government bonds and Russian “blue chips”, as well as the purchase of foreign currency, mutual funds and precious metals.
Banks and brokers, in turn, insist that the document does not protect the Russians, and introduces useless constraints for investors and undermines the ability of Russian companies.
