MICEX-RTS is the largest stock exchange in Russia, located in Moscow, trading equities, bonds, derivatives and currencies. It was officially established on 19 December 2011 through the merger of the two largest Moscow-based stock exchanges, the Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange and the Russian Trading System. Both organizations were formed in the 1990s and for two decades were the leading exchanges in Russia, with the MICEX Index and the RTS Index being among the world's top stock indices. The merger created a single entity that is expected to become a leading stock exchange globally for trading across asset classes and to advance Russia's plans to turn Moscow into an international financial centre.
