Produced by Cyprus-based Sapienta Economics Ltd, an independent consultancy, each month Sapienta Country Analysis analyzes in-depth banking-sector performance, fiscal and macroeconomic trends, debt sustainability, structural reforms including privatization, natural gas developments, and prospects for resolving the longstanding Cyprus problem.

"We are delighted to be able to offer our analysis to Bloomberg Terminal users, especially as a lot is going to be happening in Cyprus in the next 12 to 18 months," said Sapienta Economics Director Fiona Mullen.

"Cyprus is exiting the troika bailout programme, efforts to solve the Cyprus problem are accelerating and there is renewed interest in Eastern Mediterranean natural gas exploitation following the Egyptian Zohr find. All of these developments imply both opportunities and risks for fixed income or equity investors."

Unique to Bloomberg Terminal users, Sapienta Country Analysis will also offer clients a brief commentary on critical developments.

"For example, do the latest bank results show they are going forward, stalling or going backwards? I have been covering Cyprus on the ground for around 15 years, we have a big database, so I can make very rapid judgements that are more robust than the usual knee-jerk reactions," said Mullen.

Sapienta Economics is a strong believer in the inter-play between political developments and economic outcomes.

"I spent nearly eight years as the economy consultant to the United Nations on the Cyprus peace negotiations. This gives you a deep insight into the political dynamics. It also means I have spent a long time analyzing the opportunities and risks of a Cyprus settlement."

Sapienta Economics Ltd is independent, with no political ties in Cyprus or abroad and no investment in shares or bonds in Cyprus.
