Ukraine’s Reform Drive Is Powering Ahead, EM Investors Should Take Note

Ukraine has made tremendous progress with its reform agenda but must accelerate the implementation process to compete with other emerging economies

Kyiv, xx 2017 – Speakers at the 3rd annual Ukrainian Financial Forum praised the scale of reform that has been accomplished over the past three years in Ukraine. However all agreed it is crucial to accelerate the implementation of reforms to spur economic growth and pave the way for official membership of the EU.

ICU, an independent asset management firm specialising in Central and Eastern Europe, gathered leaders from Ukraine’s political, financial and business worlds alongside international decision makers at its annual forum to discuss the progress of reform in Ukraine.  Speakers included Yanis Varoufakis, economist and former finance minister of Greece, Ukraine’s Finance Minister Oleksandr Danylyuk, and Jonathan David Ostry, Deputy Director of Research at the IMF.

Makar Paseniuk, Managing Partner at ICU, said:

“Ukraine needs foreign direct investment, it is crucial for the country’s future prosperity. We need to create a healthier backdrop and a more positive agenda if we are going to generate interest and build confidence from foreign investors that Ukraine is an emerging market that they should not ignore.

“Ukraine has made remarkable progress in a short period of time however it still has a long way to go. It is important that the government forges ahead and accelerates the reform process. This will be a powerful signal to the investors waiting on the sidelines nervous about corruption, transparency and legal protection.”

A series of panel discussions and presentations from experienced industry experts provided unique insights into the most pertinent themes surrounding reform in Ukraine.

On the pace of the reform agenda:

  • Panelists acknowledged the significant progress of Ukraine’s reform but agreed the pace of implementation needs to accelerate - the country is not even halfway through planned reforms and is considerably behind countries which it seeks to view as its peers
  • Returning to the Eurobond market is undoubtedly a very positive sign, but the market will immediately close in the event of a roll back of reforms.

On anti-corruption measures

  • Panelists agreed some progress has been made tackling corruption, especially in state procurement and the gas sector
  • However, legal and court system reform remains one of Ukraine’s biggest challenges. If this problem is not solved attracting outside investment will be impossible as investors need to feel confident that their rights will be protected
  • Unrelenting talk about corruption in the domestic and international media is killing outside investor interest in Ukraine

On land reform

  • Panelists identified land reform as a primary concern for Ukraine - it is one of only two countries on the European continent that do not have a functioning land market
  • Land reform is extremely important as it would boost productivity in Ukraine’s agricultural sector which is central to exports

On the privatization of state owned assets

  • Panelists agreed privatization of key industries will be a powerful signal for investors who are still waiting on the side lines, hesitant to invest in Ukraine
  • A number of important transformations have already taken place in the energy sector but more needs to be done - the potential volume of capital to be raised from the sale of state owned land is estimated at $15-20 billion

The Ukrainian Financial Forum was held in Odessa, Ukraine from 21 – 22 September.

About the Ukranian Economic Forum

Organised in collaboration with the Kyiv School of Economics, the annual Ukrainian Financial Forum is one of the foremost financial events in Ukraine. The Forum is an open platform for distinguished authorities on international economics and politics to discuss the global macroeconomic trends and domestic market reforms that are shaping Ukraine's economy.

Ukrainian Financial Forum 2016 was held on September 29-30 at Bristol Hotel. The event was organized by ICU with sponsorship support by Thomson Reuters, with the participation of American Chamber of Commerce, public organization ACI -Ukraine  the Independent Association of Banks of UkraineCBonds information agency and the Association "Ukrainian stock traders".

The event has brought together more than two hundred representatives of the financial community in Ukraine, Europe and the United States - members of the market, financial regulators and international organizations. A characteristic feature of this year's Forum - unlike previous Lviv Financial Forum and Odessa Financial Forum, - it had interactive discussions with participants. During the discussions, participants of the Ukrainian Financial Forum 2016 were offered to answer the question - and the speakers to comment on the results. Thus, it provided a better level of interaction between speakers and audience. It is possible to raise the level of discussion, debate and raise the degree as a result - to improve mutual understanding between the parties and make another step towards the development of capital markets in Ukraine.

Among active participants of the forum were the resident representative of IMF in Ukraine Jerome Vacher, the former Minister of Finance of Slovakia and Co-Chair of the Strategic Group of advisors to support reforms in Ukraine Ivan Miklos, market strategist at a Japanese bank Nomura Timothy Ash, Deputy Finance Minister Yuri Butsa, Chairman of the National Commission of Securities securities and stock market (SSMNC) Timur Khromaev, deputy governors of the NBU Dmytro Sologub, and Oleg Churiy, representatives of the European bank for reconstruction and development (EBRD), Jacek Kubas and Hannes Takacs, chief economist for Russia and CIS at BoAMLVolodymyr Osakovsky, Deputy chairmen Parliamentary committee on finance and banking policy Ruslan Demchak, Commissioners of NSSMC Dmytro Tarabakin and Alexander Panchenko, Commissioner of the National Securities and Stock Market CommissionOlexandr Zaletov, CEO of Settlement Centre Yuriy Shapoval, Member of Executive Board, National Depository of Ukraine Andrii Porada. CEOs of all three major Ukrainian stock exchanges have also participated in the forum, including, CEO, of Stock Exchange Perspektiva Stanislav Shishkov, CEO of Ukrainian Exchange Oleg Tkachenko and CEO of PFTS Bohdan Lupiy.

Panels moderators were the Interim President, Kyiv School of Economics and cofounder of VOX Ukraine Tymofiy Mylovanov, financial journalist Darina Marchak, CEO of the Cbonds Group Sergey Lyalin, Project Manager at the Financial Sector Reform at Project Management Office, the National Reform Council of Ukraine Victoria Strakhova, managing partner of law firm Avellum Partners Mykola Stetsenko, Member of the Board ACI Ukraine Dmitri Lazarev and Warsaw Stock Exchange Representative Office in Ukraine Ulyana Shtybel

Traditionally Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko opened Ukrainian Financial Forum 2016 with a video address.

President of Ukraine spoke about the need for the country to move away from a policy of merely surviving and toward a policy of economic growth as inflation decreased to 7% and real GDP growth accelerated (from 0.1% YoY to 1.7% in 1Q16 and 2Q16 respectively).

Tasks in the near term are the creation of an attractive environment for investment to attract internal and external investors (an Investment Committee has been already created), removing hindrances to exports, full use of economic potential, and a search for resources in local markets that should come from pension and health care reforms, in particular.

Head of NBU Valeria Gontareva emphasized that NBU drastically changed monetary policy during the last year. It shifted to inflation targeting, and retained a flexible exchange regime. And after “three years of hard work”, the banking sector has been cleaned and “it is on the way to recovery”.

Liberalization of currency exchange regulations will be gradual. NBU is aiming for rationality and consistency, because volatility will cause exchange-rate destabilization and, hence, will increase inflation.

Jerome Vacher, resident representative of IMF in Ukraine, noted the beginnings of growth, but pointed to the necessity of finding a way to make it sustainable, and eliminate as much as possible the past boom-and-bust pattern in the economy. He feels the economy should rely more on the activity by small and medium enterprises/businesses, and overall economic growth should be more equitable.

Ivan Miklos, the former Minister of Finance of Slovakia and co-chairman of Strategic Advisory Group for Supporting Ukrainian Reforms pointed out that economic reforms have not yet passed the point of no return. Not only must reforms be continued, but they must be accelerated and deepened in the coming days and months. It should be noted that reforms after Maidan far exceeded those before Maidan, although there are deferred reforms that could have been carried out during this short post-Maidan period.

Konstantin Stetsenko, ICU Managing Director spoke about positive aspects of the market, as the real market is maturing. Investment structure is becoming more secure, some government bonds were up, although some stocks are falling significantly. He was in agreement with other speakers that markets need more instruments: a wider range of secure investments and securities. He also noted that large companies have started to use REPOs as alternatives for deposits.

Konstantin Stetsenko noted that the market needs new hedging instruments. It needs derivatives laws adapted to developing market infrastructure. After this is put into effect, it could be adapted to the OTC market, and two or three years later, at the stock exchanges.

Timur Khromayev, Chairman of the National Securities and Stock Market Commission (NSSMC) noted that 36% of the planned reforms in the sector have already been accomplished. There are a number of steps to further transform supervision and increase its effectiveness:

1. split the functions of the National Securities and Stock Market Commission between the NBU and NSSMC,

2. introduce strict penalties for market manipulation,

3. develop and implement new legislation for the corporate bond market, and

4. further divergence of Ukrainian legislation on financial markets with the EU directives.

Oleg Churiy, Deputy Governor of the NBU has agreed that the administrative regulations on FX market are negatively impacting the economy. However, they prevent another devaluation shock that may follow should they be quickly rescinded. It would require lasting macroeconomic stability and sufficient foreign reserves for the administrative regulations to be deemed unnecessary.

Makar Paseniuk, Managing Director, ICU noted that there is a potential for interest rates to fall to 6%—a level where aggressive, high-return investors will be substituted by the more risk-adverse.

But at this stage two "little" issues arise.

First, investor’s rights protection. Makar Pasenyuk: "Judicial reform – is urgent has no alternatives. There will noinvestments protection without the judicial reform, do not be deceived by illusions.

Second, a clearly defined set of investment ideas for Ukraine. It have to be privatization of state-owned enterprises, privatization of large state-owned enterprises, the sale of insolvent banks assets by the DGF, which are estimated to worth around US$2bn, and the introduction of state-owned land to the market, estimated to be around US$15bn. Makar Pasenyuk:"Clear invest ideas and investment protection. Nothing complicated, seemingly simple. The same seemingly simple things for the last 25 years".
