I didn't find a brokerage that offers access to the Russian stock market. The are few Russian ETFs, but they are broad.

Has anyone experience in investing in Russia stock market? If so, how?

    +0. If you want to invest in oil, you could invest in your country's oil market. If you want to invest in Russia, you could invest in a broad-based Russian ETF. Why would you want to invest specifically in the Russian oil market? Aug 9, 2016 at 20:31
  • Are you asking about the oil market or about the stock market?

The Russian ETFs may be broad, but a quick glance at ERUS and RBL's sector breakdown shows they're 45% and 47% energy sector, and their top holding is Gazprom comprising 9% and 14% of each ETF respectively, with plenty more oil and gas companies in their top 10 too. A harder question would be how to invest in Russia and avoid oil I think (and even then, the economy is thoroughly bound up in it).

To rework a meme... In Soviet Russia, oil invest YOU!
