The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives, and supports the development of the Friends for Leadership international youth movement, which is working to implement the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 163 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

The Russian Capital Market on the Threshold of a New Era
24 May 2018

New technologies and regulatory stimuli are helping attract increasingly large numbers of Russian citizens to stock market investment. A quarter of a million new brokerage accounts have been opened within the last year alone. Russians are in possession of significant savings (totalling more than RUB 26 trillion), a significant part of which could now find its way onto the public capital market. International investors have shown no signs of reducing the volume of their Russian market operations, even in the current geopolitical climate. There is a growing need for new placements of debt and equity capital, with Russian companies expanding their business (including small and medium-sized enterprises). Could the retail investor become a source of long-term capital for Russian business, reducing market volatility and its dependence on geopolitical factors? How could the success of initiatives to develop domestic investment affect the perceptions and assessments of the Russian market by international investors? Will collective investments, including citizens’ pension savings, play a role in this process?
