Hereby KIT Finance Europe (hereinafter – the Investment firm) informs that starting from 3rd January 2018, Directive of the European Parliament and Council 2014/65/EU referred to as MIFID II, will come into force. The new Directive MIFID II imposes several vital changes to conditions of rendering investment services within the European Union.
Taking into account new requirements and features of our new products and services, new edition of the Terms and Conditions of Rendering Investment Services (hereinafter – the Terms and Conditions), updated tariffs and other implementations will come into force starting from 1st January 2018:
KIT Finance Europe moves cryptocurrency trading to a new level. This market is now available to all our Clients.
Specifically, live quotes are available for free in trading terminal QUIK, while receipt of orders is performed via the phone or Personal Account. Transactions with Bitcoin, Ethereum and other instruments may be performed using RUB, EUR, USD and other currencies on the Client’s account in KIT Finance Europe.
Before executing transactions with cryptocurrencies, it is essential to get acquainted with the risks and features specified in Appendix №14 to the Terms and Conditions and send signed document to email@example.com or via Personal Account.
Apart from direct transactions with cryptocurrencies, Clients may also trade Bitcoin Futures on CME and CBOE.
In compliance with the general strategy of KIT Finance Broker Group, KIT Finance Europe significantly decreases RUB interest rates for securities and funds loans. Starting from 1st January 2018, RUB interest rate in KIT-Standard tariff will be only 12.95% per annum.
Moreover, USD interest rate remains the same, despite recent rate hikes implemented by the US Federal Reserve. USD rate in KIT-Standard tariff is 6.9% per annum.
Taking into account Clients' requests, the Investment firm have set up the boundary for the maximum commission charged for trades with penny stocks. Commission will not exceed 3% (KIT-Standard tariff) of trade value or the amount of the minimum rate.
Unfortunately, MIFID II, MIFIR (Regulation № 600/2014) and other regulatory directives that will come into force in 2018, brought significant load on activities of investment companies. Considering this fact, KIT Finance Europe is forced to amend a number of commission rates towards increase: in particular, rates for storage of securities, operations on MOEX derivatives market (FORTS) and OTC markets. In addition, commission for maintenance of suspended account is introduced.
On the other hand, AS KIT Finance Europe returned to practice of monthly write-off of commissions for custody services, which will significantly reduce the number of reports sent to Clients.

KIT Finance Europe is faithful to this approach and is always ready to negotiate with Clients trading agreements and tariffs.
