Chapter Summary

The development of the regulation of securities markets in the member states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) has been influenced both by general economic factors characteristic of the majority of countries with transition economies and by specific factors characteristic of securities markets around the world. The Model Legislative Provisions on Investor Protection (MLPIP) were intended to deal with some of the regulatory issues mentioned above in a way that was suitable for CIS countries in general. In particular, the model contained provisions regarding bondholders, professional standards for market participants, and on compensation schemes. The purpose was not to provide for state-of-the-art regulation but to establish basic legislative concepts and thus create a common foundation.

Keywords: bondholders; Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries; market participants; MLPIP; securities markets
