Keep in touch

There are such sweeping changes in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA Region) with the people’s uprisings that we were not sure if even our Western politicians would remain in control of our countries or we would find ourselves caught up in the fever! In principal the urge for democratic change (and certainly the removal of dictators/oppressive and greedy rulers) is laudable, though not many people in the MENA Region have had much training or experience in Democratic Government to fill the void. Now is the time for these countries to ask the West for such training; here are jobs for our retired politicians!

In Russia, prior to WTO acceptance, and with Sochi, Formula 1 and the Football World Cup all needing major infrastructure and construction, there are strong regulations within the country to combat corruption and promote confidence from foreign investors.. There is also the new UK anti-bribery act coming into force in April. All this has already impacted within Russia, and there is a huge reduction in requests for “negotiation fees” from Government officials, and far fewer cash fines from the Police (the standing joke has been it’s not illegal to speed/park etc., it costs!). Interest rates from Russian banks are still high (current MIBOR 6.67% for 1 year, commercial bank offers are MIBOR + 5-8% depending on client and guarantees!), so we have construction, industrial and agricultural companies in the Regions looking for Joint Ventures with Western partners who can bring financing. With the high price of minerals,oil and gaz, the country has built up its sovereign reserves again, though this still does not filter down to the commercial sector and to the Regions.

Renewable energy projects in Europe: We have PV solar and wind parks for financing/sale/JV in Europe (France, Italy, Bulgaria, Romania etc.) both “ready to build” and “turn-key”, and verified lenders/investors/buyers in this sector. Please contact us if this sector is of interest; the picture is changing in different countries, Spain is overblown, France has put a moratorium till next week for current electricity purchase, but there are still projects are within the higher feed-in tariffs – with signed Government agreements to purchase accredited projects’ output over 20 years or more, this is a very interesting investment.
