Moscow Exchange was formed in December 2011 from a merger of Russia’s two main exchange groups: MICEX Group, the oldest domestic exchange and operator of the leading equity, bond, foreign exchange and money markets in Russia; and RTS Group, which operated Russia’s leading derivatives market. This combination created a vertically integrated exchange for trading of all major asset classes. In February 2013, Moscow Exchange completed an initial public offering on its own platform (ticker: MOEX). As of 31 December 2019, the company’s market capitalization was RUB 245.53 billion, and the free float was 62.8%.
