The investment space of Ukraine is characterised by a combination of favourable investment opportunities and the imperative of thorough risk control at every stage of the investment process. The Ukrainian equity market does exist and is a relatively well-developed for a country with a transformational economy. However, the liquidity and depth of the market remain low; as do the corporate governance standards for a majority of the “public” companies in Ukraine. The bond market of Ukraine – both Treasuries and Corporates – also exists albeit in the OTC format predominantly. One of the most popular transactions are the bond sales conducted between foreign investors looking for a better yield and corporate treasury departments seeking to attract the longer-maturity funds. Corporate bonds sold in this manner are usually held until maturity.
