JSC Prime Brokerage Service (PBS), a member company of the B2Broker group, has received License from the Bank of Russia, according to B2Broker. After applying for a license with the Russian regulator earlier this year, PBS granted authorization to conduct brokerage and dealer activities in October 2021.

The Russian financial market works through a strict centralized approach and government influence on its activities. The government started concentrating on the Forex industry back in 2016, initiating the requirement for brokerages working in Russia to get a permit from the central bank, featuring the need for guidelines and the need to prevent fake entities and customers’ investment interest towards investment with a respectable broker. However, many years of unregulated activities presently fall under the umbrella of a robust regulatory system. 

These cautious actions reflected the Bank of Russia‘s attempts to clean up the market and develop trading practices in a more trustful and exceptionally regulated way. The Bank of Russia has not issued a large number of licenses. And only a few organizations have received the coveted license since only those that convey clear and straightforward activities in accordance with Bank of Russia regulations are recognized.
