WHAT’S INSIDE

SECTOR REVIEW

This quarter, many observers are anxious about how geopolitics has disrupted Iran's performance. TBY Intelligence therefore endeavors to provide subscribers with a clearer picture of how Iran's ship is faring amidst these choppy geopolitical waters. We note how the Tehran Stock Exchange continues to market itself vigorously and takes further steps to harmonize with international standards and practices, and make the bourse more dynamic. The main takeaway from this quarter will be our analysis of how committed this diversified economy is to free market principles.

PEOPLE TO WATCH

This quarter TBY Intelligence examines how well some of Iran's largest firms have succeeded in their efforts to privatize. To players unfamiliar with the Iran market, identifying the numerous pseudo-privatized entities can be challenging, and particularly since the embrace of an Iran-wide campaign to attract investment by becoming transparent enterprises free of state influence can sometimes muddy the waters surrounding financial integrity. That is why this quarter we furnish subscribers with an in-depth “Who's who” and “What's what” of Iran's privatization endeavors.
