The easiest way to get exposure to the SEE&CEE region
At KD Funds we have investment professionals in offices throughout South-East Europe (SEE) with unparalleled knowledge of the region and a competitive edge with regard to the emerging and frontier markets of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). Our focus also includes raising corporate governance standards and the integrity of capital markets through active dialogue and a hands-on approach. We are therefore constantly on the road so that we can communicate with companies, their customers and competition.
Eastern European investment markets are relatively young, so-called ‘frontier’ markets. Yet they have developed rapidly since their transition to a democracy in the early 1990s. Some countries are already in the European Union and the eurozone, while others are on the accession path to European Union membership or preparing to adopt the single currency, the euro.
At KD Funds we see a tremendous opportunity for investors as Eastern European countries go through the transition process. Integration to form a single union with a common currency means a common body of legislation and regulatory environment together with coherent policies. This results in the opening up of financial markets, access to capital, trade liberalisation, market efficiency and the convergence of the real economy. The outcome is a reduction of systematic risk due to the increasing transparency, improving corporate governance and eventual removal of exchange rate risk.
