UKRAINE FINANCE PARTNERS
We founded UFP because we see Ukraine providing attractive investment opportunities for small and large investors. We believe that Ukraine is no different than the opportunities created after the collapses of Argentina, Mexico, and Russia.
Furthermore we believe that Ukraine has achieved significant progress during the past two years including free elections, debt restructuring, an IMF agreement and corresponding disbursement, progress on reforms, a material reduction of hostilities with Russia and the continuous support from the West.
UFP focuses on sourcing harder to find, less publicized and asymmetric risk/reward opportunities.
