New Trends in Finance and Banking

The Moscow Financial Innovation Forum (MFIF) is a unique platform for International Financial Service Providers to meet the growing Russian and Former Soviet Union Financial Industry. Moscow is rapidly developing into a world class International Financial Centre and requires qualified and reliable partners for linking it with the international financial community.

Moscow Financial Centre

Turning Moscow into an international financial centre is a long-term project. Effective steps towards significant improvement of regulatory and legislative issues are set to be taken over this period. The success of the project will be measureable by objective key performance indicators, such as capitalization growth, improved liquidity, including cross-border trade volume growth and launch of new financial instruments, as well as by Moscow gaining advanced positions in international financial centre ratings.
