16th International Ruble Settlement Forum
EBS will be hosting the 16th International Ruble Settlement Forum (IRSF) on 28 October 2014 in Golden Ring Hotel in Moscow.
The IRSF was established in 2007 to encourage the Central Bank of Russia to mandate the Banking Electronic Speedy Payments (BESP) real-time gross settlement system and now also includes a second mandate for the ruble to become a CLS-traded currency by 2015.
Attendees, including major ruble market participants, will discuss ruble trading trends, their strategies for overcoming the challenges of the current Russian payment system and the progress of the ruble towards becoming a CLS-traded currency.
The Forum will be chaired by Darryl Hooker, Head of EBS Market.
