Why we believe in Ukraine

Too many investors approach emerging markets in completely the wrong way. They jump on board the bandwagon when it's fashionable, when the stock markets of developing countries are expensive. They then bail out in panic when the wheels start to rattle. But in every crisis, there are golden opportunities; the real changes in the social and political scenes means tjat democracy, the rule of law and the Association Agreement with the EU are paving the way for exciting new market opportunities to open up. That's why we believe, now, more than ever, is the right time to invest in Ukraine!

Ukraine became an independent Country 23 years ago but only now has it truly found it's own identity, pride and self belief. It is going to take time and it will need considerable investment in money and resources for the Country to catch up with its FSU peers but such challenges also bring opportunities.

DTZ Ukraine

Holding the position of Managing Director of DTZ Ukraine for around 15 years I have come to appreciate that whilst this is potentially one of the most rewarding markets in which to invest, it is without doubt one the most challenging where robust advice and diligence often define between successful and disastrous decisions.
