The 2013 Moscow International Financial Forum was held September 11–12 at the Congress Center of the Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The event brought together some of the biggest players in Russian finance, including banks, pension funds, investment companies, government officials, money managers and private investors. Alpari was the only Forex broker that took part in the prestigious event.
Among the highlights of the Forum was a presentation delivered by Alexander Novodvorskiy, head of Alpari's investment department. The speech, titled "Practical Solutions for Creating Funds", covered an exciting new development in Forex investments which makes it possible to start up what is essentially a simplified version of a hedge fund in a short amount of time and with minimal expenses. Novodvorskiy’s investment scheme will likely see some interest from banks, money managers and investment companies. Alpari also announced an upcoming development in its structured product offering. Soon Alpari clients will be able to use the money they have invested in structured products towards meeting margin requirements in their Forex trading. This new service should increase interest in its already-popular line of structured products.
Alpari has made numerous contributions to the Russian financial community over the years and is the leading Forex broker in Russia and the countries of the CIS. Traders and investors recognize Alpari as one of the prime movers in the Forex industry. So do competitors. The vast majority of Alpari's breakthrough trading and investment products throughout the years have been copied by the competition. However, Alpari has only embraced these "tributes" from other brokers, advocating for progress in the Forex industry above all else.
