This new report on Ukraine addresses a major precondition for reconstruction and development: a healthy and widely trusted financial system. We start from the status quo of Ukraine’s banking and capital market and suggest policy options for improving system effectiveness and increasing international trust in the system. Key messages related to institution building: 
•    Ukraine Development Platform will help to coordinate financial activities at the level of the international, i.e. European, community.
•    Ukraine Development Bank will ensure a proper channeling of international capital (public and private) to industry across the country, by refinancing existing banks in the country.
•    Further reform options address the recapitalization and subsequent privatization of banks, the liberation of bank assets for lending purposes, and the future role of capital and housing markets.
The policy options draw on historical experiences in other countries, aiming for a sea-change in Ukraine’s attractiveness for international investors, both public and private.
The report is written by renowned economists and CEPR fellows from Ukraine, the US, and Europe, coordinated by the Leibniz Institute for Financial Research SAFE.
The attendance is free of charge but a registration is required. The registration is organized by the CEPR.
