Subject. The article addresses the prohibition, enshrined in Russian legislation, on preparation and publication of analytical products by appraisers as a factor that reduces the effectiveness and hinders the development of the Russian corporate bond market.
Objectives. The aim is to update the problem of unequal conditions and opportunities for participation of credit rating agencies, appraisers, and investment advisors in providing rating and analytical products to the Russian corporate bond market actors.
Methods. We employ methods of systematization, comparison, and systems analysis of interactions between subjects of the corporate bond market, which are perceived as unbalanced due to the ban on the preparation and publication of analytical products by appraisers.
Results. The paper underpins the economic expediency of lifting the ban on the preparation and publication of analytical products by appraisers that is fixed in the Russian legislation. The suggestion may be of interest to the subjects of the securities market.
Conclusions. It is advisable that the basic concepts for the development of the financial market, the securities market, the corporate bond market, would include services of developers of rating and analytical products, i.e. credit rating agencies, appraisers, and investment advisers, in the preparation for the reorganization of the market. Lifting the ban on the preparation and publication of analytical products by appraisers, enshrined in Russian legislation, will have a positive impact on solving the problem of information disclosure in the corporate bond market.
