August 2, 2019

Dear Manager,

Good news!

We are pleased to announce that effective Monday, August 20, 2018, we had released the Moscow Exchange (MOEX) for all offices.

As a result, traders will be able to trade Moscow equities again.

In order to trade, managers will need to enable the respective entitlements for their traders in Metro.

And if it is their first time trading the market, they will also need to request buying power.
