History of exchange business in Russia is more than one century long. Even in times of Novgorod Russia in XII century merchants meetings were the prototype of the Stock Exchange. Afterwards, exchanges appeared in the Russian capitals – Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as in other major cities of the empire. In the Soviet era, exchange tradition was interrupted for 60 years. Only at the end of XX century stock exchange business was resumed.
