Kostyantyn Stetsenko, the ICU managing partner revealed to the foreign investors that there is a number of the dynamically developing companies in Ukraine that need the financing in hryvnia for the further stable growth.
"The banking system of the country is not ready to finance them in the needed volume so the attraction of the investments by the issuance of the bonds remains to be the actual tool for the companies. The Ukrainian bond market recovers from 2014-2015 crisis step by step and offers relatively high incomes amid the improving of the macroeconomic situation, currency regime, and simplification of the access to the market for the foreign investors," he said.
