May 4th, 2006 8:00am
Wyndham Hotel, 89 Broad Street, Boston, MA
To bring you up to date on developments in Russian and Ukrainian securities and private equity markets, we invite you to Boston on May 4th for our 4th Annual Financial Markets Conference.
Investor interest in both Russia and Ukraine continues to grow year over year, driven by strong economics, government reforms and vast potential consumer markets.Russia plans an unprecedented roll-out of IPOs during 2006, with 20 or more Russian firms expected to sell equity to international investors valued somewhere in the range of $18 billion-$25 billion, representing at least a fourfold increase over 2005, when 9 firms listed on the Moscow and London Stock Exchanges.Ukraine also continues to sustain positive economic development, having recently achieved market economy status, and continues to attract considerable attention from investors across a range of industries. As a large and diverse emerging market located in the center of Europe, Ukraine is making great strides in becoming a proficient trading nation and an integrated part of the global economy.
At the conference, you will hear directly from Russian and Ukrainian corporate leaders, representatives of international investment institutions, and U.S. executives with the inside story on how to participate in two of the worldвЂ™s most promising emerging markets.
