Methods. The study is based on general scientific methods of analysis and synthesis, comparative and comparative analysis, graphical method of analysis.
Results. As a result of the analysis of international experience and innovative methods of listing, it was determined that there are legal obstacles that currently limit the possibility of using new methods of listing shares in the Russian market. At the same time, there is a demand from small and medium-sized businesses, as well as large Russian non-public companies, for simpler and less expensive ways to enter the equity capital market.
