Giedrius Tomas Jarmalavičius, Head of UAB GTJ Investment

Finding like-minded advisors is not easy for an investor, but it is very important for the security of an investment. It is no coincidence that our partnership with Evli Bank of Finland was established many years ago – our trust was built on Scandinavian values, transparency, and warm and direct communication. Our cooperation with Evernord followed in the same spirit. The Evernord team’s attitude, expertise, and readiness to provide the necessary insights at any time, helps us to successfully achieve our investment goals.

Vykintas Misiūnas, Director and co-owner of UAB Dehidra

With the help of Evernord, we successfully issued bonds several years ago, raising 4 million euros. and investing in the development of our strawberry growing and freeze-drying business. The Evernord’s team has been with us every step of the way, providing expert advice and dispelling the doubts which inevitably arise when expanding into new horizons. We are now developing this business internationally, and are grateful to Evernord for the decisive “go ahead, we can do it” support.

Marius Šlepetis, Head of UAB Legal Balance

The joint projects between Evernord and Legal Balance have not only helped us realise our ambitious plans, but have also given us the opportunity to gain new experiences. Our partners’ competences and expert insights help us to successfully grow the company, make value-creating investment decisions and expand our business. They display a professional approach, an impeccable work ethic, and have an ambitious and reliable team that is always a pleasure to work with, always striving to achieve the highest and most sustainable business goals.

Investors are encouraged to lend when yields are rising, inflation is expected to slow down, and central bank policies are favourable

After a stressful year and difficulties in raising capital, borrowers are attracting a lot of investor interest.

In the first 18 days of the year, businesses and governments around the world have already issued almost €600 billion of bonds. That's the most active start to a year in bond markets in history, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

After a downward spiral last year not only for equities but also for debt securities, businesses and governments faced worsening borrowing conditions, but at the start of this year issuers are seeing a sudden surge in enthusiasm from investors willing to lend.

The latter is driven by yields on debt markets not seen for 15 years and by investors' expectations of a slowdown in inflation and, consequently, of central banks cutting interest rates, possibly as early as the end of this year. This is pushing investors to lock in elevated yields.

Valdas Adamkus, President of the Republic of Lithuania

The Evernord team has been helping take care of our family’s assets for almost 20 years. We feel safe and loved, enjoying special attention, and know that we have entrusted the management of our wealth to genuine professionals. We would also like to express our sincere gratitude for their assistance in establishing the Valdas Adamkus Library-Museum. We are confident that we can rely on those we work with directly and who take responsibility for our investment decisions.
