Dragon Capital accounts for the largest share of turnover on the Ukrainian stock market carrying out approximately a third of reported transactions. The company also dominates the Ukrainian debt market, with Dragon Capital’s DCM team advising leading corporates and banks on raising debt through local bonds, Eurobonds, structured finance and bilateral debt. The company’s fixed-income sales and trading business acts as a market maker in both domestic and international debt instruments, trading actively with international and domestic investors. The company has completed more than 100 fundraising, advisory and M&A deals since inception and has raised more than $5bn in new capital. Our core investment banking products are domestic and cross border M&A transactions, IPOs, private placements, debt financing including issuance of local bonds and Eurobonds. In November 2015, Dragon Capital announced the launch of The New Ukraine Fund, a private equity investment fund focusing on growth-capital investments in Ukraine.
