Romania can become attractive for investment funds, especially in sectors such as production and IT, due to stable macro-economic indicators and activity of drawing capital anticipated for the following 12 months, said Hein van Dam, a Deloitte Romania partner, during the unveiling of the latest survey of the company.
‘The activity of investment funds present in Romania was relatively low compared to other countries in the region. However, due to stable macro-economic indicators and the activity of drawing capital anticipated for the next 12 months, we are confident that Romania will become attractive for investment funds, especially in sectors such as production and IT,’ said Hein van Dam.
According to the Deloitte EC Private Equity Confidence survey, almost one third of investors believe that trading activity will increase in the next year.
Almost half (43%) of respondents expect trading activity to double from last year. This can be the result of the new round of quantitative relaxation of the European Central Bank, as one third of investors suggest that credit market will be more liquid.
‘The intention on drawing capital records the highest growth rate since Deloitte launched this study, in 2003. It also shows that investors estimate that they will equally share their activity between drawing capital (30%), management of the portfolio (33%) and new investments (37%), in the next six months,’ the survey reads.
Another conclusion of the survey is that the interest in technology sector investments increased to 20%, almost three times more than in 2013. ‘The companies operating in Romania’s IT sector are also on the radar of investors, through the world-class business deals with which thy have conquered the world,’ according to Deloitte.
