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.

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.

According to Council Regulation No 833/2014 of 31 July 2014 and Council Regulation No 960/2014 of 8 September 2014 (hereinafter the Regulations) European Union (hereinafter EU) introduced sanctions against certain Russian companies by restricting subscription and trading (hereinafter Sanctions) with the securities issued by those companies.
List of companies under sanctions:
It is prohibited to trade (purchase, sell, exchange) or otherwise deal with securities (shares, bonds, etc.) and money-market instruments with a maturity exceeding:
90 days, issued after 1 August 2014 to 12. September 2014 or
30 days, issued after 12 September 2014
by those companies, their subsidiaries established outside the EU and those entities acting on behalf of abovementioned companies.
Before submitting an order for transactions make sure that respective securities are not subject to the Sanctions. KIT Finance Europe does not provide investment services in regard of the securities issued after 01/08/2014 by the abovementioned companies.
The Regulations are available at:
KIT Finance Europe would like to take this opportunity to notify you of upcoming changes to the settlement of transactions in Europe. At the present time, the settlement period of most stock exchange transactions across European venues is trade date + 3 business days (T+3). The exception to this general standard is a T+2 settlement period which currently exists in the German, Slovenian and Bulgarian markets.
Effective from the trade date 6 October 2014, most European markets will be harmonized to settle transactions in 2 business days (T+2). This change will impact the settlement of stocks, warrants, bonds, certificates and CFDs.
At this time, the following markets have confirmed 6 October 2014 as the migration date and therefore, trades executed prior to trading day 6 October will settle on T+3 while trades on and after trading day 6 October will settle T+2: Austria, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom.
The Spanish authorities have announced fixed income securities will migrate to T+2 for trades of 6 October; however, equities are not expected to migrate until the fourth quarter 2015.
The acceleration of the settlement cycle from three to two business days will contribute to the harmonization of settlement cycles throughout Europe and further reduce operational inefficiencies and risks for cross-border transactions. However, if you are trading in European settled securities and/or European stock options in the above mentioned markets, please note that this change will have an impact on the settlement date for trades and/or exercises executed on and after trading day 6 October 2014.
Please consider this information while planning your work and investment decisions during these days.
We would like to inform you about the changes to the Terms and Conditions of Rendering Investment Service of KIT Finance Europe and related Appendixes coming into force as of 01/07/2014.
We constantly aim to improve our service and strenghten our risk management. Thus, we have prepared new edition of Terms and Conditions, which includes the folllowing amendments:
In the course of new tariff policy, starting from the 1st July 2014 a new line of standard tariff rates is entered for custodial services as well as for transactions with equities and other financial instruments.
In particular, KIT-General becomes the standard tariff of the Investment Firm. In case of provision of services not specified in Your tariff, commission of the Investment Firm as well as payment of expenses will be calculated at the rates of KIT-General, if other is not explicitly stated in the agreement, Terms of Conditions or Your tariffs.
Please pay attention, however, that we are always glad to prepare for You the individual tariff proposal, depending on Your trade profile and investment purposes!
