Foreign Firms Visiting Iran

 Renaissance Capital chief economist visits Iran and writes this report

RobertsonCharles.jpgRenaissance Capital's Global Chief Economist Charles Robertson has visited Iran back in March 2014 and published an interesting report after his visit.

"The past 10 years have seen global investors reach into previously untapped markets, from local-currency corporate bonds in emerging markets to equities in frontier markets ... We believe Iran would represent the last such opportunity globally, in an investable scenario. No other country is as large or as untapped."

"Unlikely as it may sound, stock market capitalisation is roughly $170bn (similar to Poland) after a wide-ranging privatisation drive over the past decade. The free float on the main market is closer to $30bn, which is above the MSCI free floats of Kuwait and Nigeria. This would make it equivalent to roughly 25% of the MSCI frontier index if all companies qualified for inclusion. On the local exchange's data, daily trading volumes are around $150mn. This compares with $26mn in Nigeria in 2013. There are no Iranian barriers to foreigners investing in the market: foreign brands from Coca-Cola to Danone are in the country."

 American venture capitalist Schroeder re-visits Iran and writes a report

chris-sh.jpgAmerican venture capitalist and tech entrepreneur Christopher Schroeder has been visiting Iran in the past year and has been publishing fantastic reports about his visits.

Back in May 2014 he writes a report in Harvard Business Review titled "What It's Like Being a Business Traveler in Iran":

"We almost immediately learned that Iran is an astoundingly lovely place, with very little of the deep poverty one sees intertwined into the societies of most emerging markets ... We didn't see a fraction of the religious tension we expected. Everywhere we went, people came up to us even on the streets, tourist spots and restaurants to say hello, to thank us for being there, to express affection."

At the same time he writes a more tech-centric post for the tech website Pando. And a couple of weeks ago he writes a new piece in Politico. All of them are fantastic reads.

"On the ground, Iran reminded one of earlier economic and market transitions such as Latin America at the turn of the 1990s or Russia and central Europe in the mid-1990s. ... However, Iran has some unique characteristics that suggest a nuclear deal could stimulate an accelerated transition", he writes in FT.
