Turkey ETF

For years Turkey has been a real growth wonder. At the same time that the EU was confronted with severe challenges Turkey was prospering.

Unfortunately this magnificent growth has turned sour. Increasing political uncertainty and a war waging at its borders have made Turkey a less stable country to invest. It will be a real challenge to invest in a Turkey ETF while assessing all these negative factors.

If Turkey and the wider region will come to a more stable situation there will rise opportunities, no doubt about that. If, however, things further escalate, the Turkish fairytale is over.
