In 1991, when Russia's free market economy was beginning to develop, Interfax became the country's first news agency to launch a specialised Financial and Business News Service.
Since then, Interfax has created unique information services that provide financial market participants with all the information they need in terms of news, market data and analysis.
Interfax's subscribers are the first to see news that moves financial markets. They receive real-time data and latest news from the Russian, Ukrainian and major international trading floors. Interfax publishes analytical forecasts, consensus forecasts and commentaries on the situation in the financial markets.
In Russia alone, there are more than 30,000 stock market players, from major banks to private investors that receive Interfax news.
