Igor Marich, Moscow Exchange Executive Board Member and Managing Director for Sales and Business Development, commented:

"We strive to offer the widest range of services and instruments to our clients and we are continually growing our product line. MOEX has already launched trading in non-Russian securities in the form of ETFs and global derivatives products. Now it is time for foreign stocks; we are beginning with the most liquid shares of the biggest issuers and will add more stocks based on demand from clients. Trading and settlement will be conducted in RUB to allow investors to avoid excess transactions and costs and see their bottom lines directly in their local currency".

While preparing to trade foreign stocks, individual investors may submit Form W-8 to report income from U.S. securities sales.
