Abstract: This article is about finance — growth nexus with application to Russia. 57 quarterly observations in 2003-2017 were used to test four popular hypotheses on this subject. The author employed econometric methodology which included vector auto regression (VAR) analysis, stationarity tests, Johansen-Juselius cointegration test, Granger causality test, weak exogeneity tests and variance decomposition. The variables in the our VAR-model are found to be non-stationary and cointegrated. Russia’s economic growth seems to be Granger caused by the proliferation of bank credit to local enterprises and (to a much lesser degree) issuance of shares. In the medium-term prospective the stock market is projected to replace bank finance as a main influence on economic growth.
