What Does the Future Hold for the Hryvna? Dragon Capital’s View

Will we see a repeat of the autumn 2008 crisis? How to best protect and boost your savings? These issues will be discussed in an open meeting hosted by Ukraine’s largest investment company Dragon Capital, which will be held on September 29.

Kyiv, September 29, 2011 – Will we see a repeat of the autumn 2008 crisis? How to best protect and boost your savings? These questions seem increasingly relevant for everyone in the recent months.

These issues will be discussed in an open meeting hosted by Ukraine’s largest investment company Dragon Capital, which will be held on September 29 (Thursday) 2011 in Kyiv City Teacher’s House from 18:30 to 21:00. The event will be in Russian, with no simultaneous translation into English.

Admission is free and pre-registration is required on our website. The venue is at 57 Vladimirs’ka Street (close to metro stations Teatral’na, Zoloti Vorota, or L’va Tolstogo). Check the location on the map.

At the meeting, Dragon Capital experts will provide their views on the last global developments and their impact on Ukraine. Attendees will be able to ask questions to the panelists.

Participants will also learn about how they can capitalize on the undervalued stocks listed on the Ukrainian Stock Exchange. Indeed, since 2009 every Ukrainian can trade shares on the Ukrainian Stock Exchange via Internet using a computer, and recently can get quotes even with an iPhone.

Other investment opportunities such as bonds and mutual funds, which can generate higher returns than normal deposit accounts, will also be discussed. For example, despite the recent market turbulence, the profitability of the “Platinum” mutual fund exceeded the yield on deposits, providing asset growth of 23.13% from August 2006 until September 2011.

- Olena Bilan, Chief Economist, Dragon Capital (the most frequently quoted Ukrainian macroeconomist in 2010 in both foreign and domestic media).

- Andriy Dmytrenko, Managing Director, Equity Sales and Retail Business Development, Dragon Capital.

- Dmytro Zozulya, Director, Domestic Sales, Dragon Asset Management.
