The list of available instruments for unqualified investors should be limited, said Vladimir Chistyukhin, First Deputy Head of the Central Bank of Russia. Structural instruments, including structural bonds, should be removed from this list.

Chistyukhin explained to Vedomosti that for investors who do not have sufficient qualifications, only simple instruments should be available, for example, highly reliable bonds, shares of the upper echelons, shares of open funds and other instruments.

- It makes sense to seriously consider whether it is necessary to supplement this list. It is necessary to understand how ready we are for the investor to bear further losses, - the expert emphasized.

He believes that common stocks and bonds solve the problem of long-term investment.

Currently, for unqualified investors, such basic instruments as stocks, OFZs, shares of mutual funds, mortgage bonds. To work with more risky instruments, they need to be tested, after which they can get access to work with structured bonds, repo transactions, shares of foreign companies that are not included in the indexes from the regulator's list, and others.

As early as last year, the authorities proposed limiting the sale of complex financial and investment products to unqualified investors. As historian Viktor Shusharin noted, in this way, among other things, the possibilities of involving new people in market relations are reduced, “the authorities seek to prevent the complication of social stratification, which leads to a free market economy,” but as a result.

Recall that the Bank of Russia advised brokers not to sue inexperienced investors who owed them because of transactions with “leverage” against the backdrop of “increased market volatility” in February-March, but to resolve the issue individually.
