Importance The paper discusses the current issues of regulating alternative electronic trading systems, dark pools and crowdfunding platforms based on securities in the financial markets of Hong Kong and Singapore, as well as the possibilities of introducing the experience of these countries in the Russian stock market.
Objectives The paper aims to develop practical recommendations to improve the Russian regulatory system for over-the-counter (OTC) stock market institutions based on the analysis of best foreign approaches and methods.
Methods In this study, I used the methods of statistical grouping, analysis and synthesis.
Results The results of the study show that the admission of leading foreign electronic trading systems to the Russian financial market will have a positive impact on its transparency, while maintaining the overall level of systemic risk, without the expectation of a significant liquidity outflow from the stock market.
Conclusions Despite the fact that most of the institutions of the OTC market operating in the countries under consideration are of foreign origin, their admission to the financial market is fairly liberal. There is a tendency to tighten the requirements for the dark pools operators to maximize the convergence of this segment with the major stock markets.
