CBR said to stop the tide of rubles leaving bank accounts.

With the proclaimed goal of reducing the risk, the steps are aimed at cutting new investors off the opportunities to get out of the rouble.

Beginning borrowers in Russia will shortly have fewer opportunities to beat the plummeting interest rates offered in Russian savings accounts. In addition to the investors themselves, it is possible that the big winners will be trading applications like Robinhood, targeted at first-timers.

Per a Dec. 30 announcement, the Central Bank of Russia is working to get securities trading platforms to toe the line on “risk-reduction” measures first passed in July. In the latest announcement, the CBR recommends securities platforms and applications have systems to “secure the impossibility of executing on-platform trades resulting in the acquisition of stocks or other securities from foreign issuers by unqualified investors,” except those approved by the CBR.

The CBR is likewise working to stop firms from offering “complicated investment products” — a term that largely lines up with leveraged trading or derivatives — to unqualified investors unless the firms offering those investments provide guaranteed returns of at least two-thirds of the central bank’s key rate. With the key rate at 4.25% currently, platforms would need to guarantee 2.83% returns.

There are major doubts that the actual intention is to protect investors. While 4.5% would be enviable for a U.S. savings account, the ruble’s instability since sanctions in 2014 and, more recently, the market crash in March 2020 has driven huge numbers of investors to the stock market for the first time.

Similarly, in October, the CBR released guidelines to limit unqualified buyers from buying cryptography worth more than 600,000 roubles (as of release, just over $8,000 U.S. dollars) in a year. That advice was part of an explanation of the “On Digital Financial Assets,” legislation of the world, which came into force in the new year.
