Closir, a leading corporate access technology platform, today announced a strategic partnership with Moscow Exchange. Moscow Exchange will be using Closir’s technology to provide global investors with access to management of its listed companies during its well-established series of MOEX Forums in Moscow, London and New York.
These forums provide global investors with unique insights into the Russian market as well as the opportunity to meet with leading Russian companies.
Closir is a technology platform which connects listed companies in emerging markets to institutional investors including mutual funds, sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and hedge funds allowing them to organise meetings, roadshows and virtual conferences. Closir extends the reach of companies throughout Europe, United States and Asia.
Commenting on the partnership, Closir’s CEO Michael Chojnacki said:
“From an investor relations and corporate access standpoint, MOEX has long stood out as one of the most proactive and innovative exchanges not only in emerging markets, but globally. We are glad that MOEX has selected Closir to build on this culture and introduce a technology solution to a rapidly changing industry.”
Anna Vasilenko, Head of Primary Markets at Moscow Exchange, added:
“MiFID II regulations that have been rolled out in Europe and increasingly adopted in the US have impacted how corporate access is consumed by investors. Our partnership with Closir will provide investors from around the world with easy and efficient direct access to Russian companies during the forums, and it should help to drive awareness and attract additional investment to our markets.”
