Makar Paseniuk: ICU leads in Ukraine

As part of Euromoney's 50th anniversary coverage, we profile some of the biggest names that we interviewed for our May CEE focus.

It can be hard to believe today, but in the run-up to the financial crisis Ukraine was seen as one of emerging Europe’s most promising markets by international investment banks. 

Listings by Ukrainian companies were starting to appear on stock exchanges in London and Warsaw, while a growing cohort of corporate borrowers was raising funding in the Eurobond market.

Much of that business passed through the Kiev office of ING, which in 2006 became the first foreign bank to set up an investment banking arm on the ground in Ukraine. 

Overseeing the new operation was Makar Paseniuk, who had been covering the market from London since joining ING eight years earlier.
