"Having experienced difficulties in finding information on suitable investment targets in the region, where very little useful information is accessible, I consider the EMDI concept particularly helpful and practical. EMDI allows investors with different appetites towards the size of the investment, risk level and those with individual regional preferences to conduct preliminary screenings of investment opportunities available in their preferred market segments. The concept is very contemporary and user friendly. Not of the least importance is the fact that the service is available free of charge."
