OECD Russia Corporate Governance Roundtable Session

Moscow, 22-23 October 2013

OECD Russia Corporate Governance Roundtable Session took place in Moscow on 22-23 October 2013. The implementation strategy for the revised Corporate Governance Code was the session’s central theme. Although not yet formally adopted, the revised draft of the Code has been released and can be accessed here (in Russian). The Bank of Russia is the new owner of the Code; it is expected to release and sign off on a final version.

Some of the governance principles presented in the draft version, however, have been reflected in the new listing rules issued by the Federal Financial Markets Service on 30 July 2013. The Service has subsequently become part of the Bank of Russia.

"As a leading provider of professional services we have a keen interest in seeing the financial markets of the CIS grow in integrity, scale and depth. The impact of our services is linked to the overall strength of financial markets – and this strength can only be based on strong institutions and investors' trust. Corporate Governance standards represent an important part of these fundamentals.
