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.

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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 165 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 76 countries worldwide, and 154 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

Session 3.3: The Derivatives Market: On the Cusp of Change?
4 July 2019
During this session, participants will discuss existing regulation, the requirements of today’s financial market participants (including corporate and institutional investors) and actions that need to be taken for the further development of the derivatives market.
Currently, spot trading holds the largest share of the commodity market. The development of a derivatives market is the logical transition from a spot market to an investment market, whereby derivatives move in correspondence to underlying assets, which is a crucial part of using hedging to manage financial risks. Currently, commodity derivatives are tied for the most part to foreign benchmarks, which do not always fairly reflect the value of Russian commodities.
This session will therefore focus on plans by Russian exchanges to develop derivative trading based on commodities (oil, petroleum products, agricultural products, etc.) targeting both domestic and foreign markets.
Derivatives traded on the Russian market based on other underlying assets, including standardised and other exchange derivatives, will also be discussed.
The discussion will cover pressing issues of regulating interest rate risk of a certain financial instrument, and the use of repo with CPC indicators as an indicator of a fast-developing product in the money market
