OREANDA-NEWS. The Russian media studied which securities private investors prefer to invest with the amount in the brokerage account of up to 1.4 million rubles. The vast majority of such investors, their share among brokers' clients, Tinkoff Bank experts estimated at 80%. There were only a few papers that the Central Bank considers too risky for the Russians in the top 25 of their investments. A regulator who wants to complicate access to the assets of foreign companies may come from political considerations, experts say.

Four brokers provided data on the investments of Russians to the business media, which, according to the Moscow Exchange, are among the top 7 largest in attracting private investors in 2019: BCS, Finam, Alfa Bank and Otkritie Broker. The selection took into account securities in which at least 1% of customer money was invested with an account of up to 1.4 million rubles. Brokers of Sberbank, VTB and Tinkoff Bank didn't disclose information.

The most widely represented in the portfolios of investors who could fall into the “specially protected category” are Russian government securities: various issues of federal loan bonds.
