The FINANCIAL -- Galt & Taggart enables investors to trade on regional debt markets. To this end, the company launched a new monthly report, Regional Fixed Income Market Watch, which covers the debt markets of Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Ukraine.

There is a scarcity of information on these markets, which are part of a growing region, at a time when there is growing interest in emerging and frontier market securities. The new report aims to arm investors with the relevant information on the macro environment of these countries, as well as on the available fixed income instruments. Meanwhile, Galt & Taggart’s brokerage department provides trading execution and custody access to these hard-to-reach markets.

Regional Fixed Income Market Watch provides market data for both locally and internationally listed debt issuances from these countries. Furthermore, the report includes country-level macro indicators, such as sovereign ratings, monetary policy rates, economic growth, fiscal and current account balances.

“This is an important strategic step in the further development of Galt & Taggart, which envisages a regional expansion of our coverage area. With this move, we enable the investors to take a regional view of the fixed income market, as they make investment decisions based on their risk appetite and expected return,” commented Archil Gachechiladze, Chairman of Galt & Taggart.
