There is a firm commitment by governments and regulators in this region, to build sustainable, resilient and technology-driven economies. These reformist ambitions imply greater scope for further growth and international cooperation. Local markets have made strides to internationalise their economies and attract FDI, including developing international financial centres, e.g. MIFC (Russia), AIFC (Kazakhstan), IFC (Turkey), and TIFC (Uzbekistan). EECAN markets actively seek partners to help them develop internationally recognised financial centres with modern infrastructure and robust regulatory frameworks. A DIT study into Russia’s import of UK services has identified a £1.4bn trade gap, where high-growth potential exists in legal services and (re)insurance.

This session will cover four markets: Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. DIT provides tailored support to UK F&PS companies wishing to explore the region and has identified opportunities in following sub-sector verticals:

  • Legal services: corporate governance, dispute resolution, international financial regulation, best practices in ESG
  • Professional services (consulting and advisory): ESG transformation, digitalisation, due diligence (tax, financial, ESG), company valuations and appraisals, dual IPO listings, bond issuances
