Last year, five million new retail investors opened brokerage accounts, more than all previous years together. Over the last six years, the number of retail investors trading on the exchange has increased ten-fold.

The ten-millionth account was opened by Tinkoff Bank in the Irkutsk Region.

The exchange noted that the most active banks in opening retail investment accounts are Sberbank (4.20 million), Tinkoff Bank (4.19 million), VTB (1.23 million), BCS (0.63 million) and Alfa Bank (0.56 million).

The Russian exchange said that its retail client base is mostly interested in trading equities and 42% of its total turnover comes from there. The derivative market is also popular, also generating 42% of the yearly turnover. The bonds and FX markets account for 10.5% and 14%, respectively.
