On September 12, 2012 a special event will be held at Moscow’s Maly Theater in honor of this year’s Day of the Financier (September 8), an official Russian professional holiday. Among the highlights of the evening will be a ceremony during which the 2012 "Reputation of the Year" award will be handed out. Alpari is part of the organizing committee for this year’s "Day of the Financier" and is helping put together the large annual event.
The Day of the Financier is meant to emphasize the important role that the financial system plays in pushing society forward. "The Day of the Financier is a really important professional holiday that brings together everyone working towards the financial and economic development of our country. We’re glad to be a part of this important event. We always have the strength and energy required to take on even the most difficult of challenges," commented Alpari Corporate Communications Director Valeriy Tarasov.

One of the main tasks ahead for the organizing committee will be helping to choose the recipients of the main "Reputation of the Year" award and rewards in several sub-categories. The winners will be chosen from among some of the most respected names in the Russian business community, as voted on by peers.
