Japon­ica Part­ners head Paul Kazar­ian re­vealed his in­vest­ment firm is look­ing into op­por­tu­ni­ties in the Greek mar­ket and added that state as­sets re­quire im­proved man­age­ment to be­come more at­trac­tive to in­vestors. “The more ef­fec­tive the gov­ern­ment and its po­lit­i­cal in­sti­tu­tions are in man­ag­ing the as­sets and li­a­bil­i­ties of the peo­ple, the more pos­i­tive we are about in­vest­ing in the coun­try,” Kazar­ian said in an in­ter­view with the web­site Cap­i­tal.gr. The chair­man and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of the USbased pri­vate eq­uity firm, which un­til re­cently was one of the big­gest in­vestors in Greek bonds, ar­gued that “the coun­tries that do the best job in man­ag­ing their bal­ance sheet of­fer the low­est risk for an in­vestor, and then they al­low us to fo­cus on what we can do best, which is mar­ket­ing, lo­gis­tics and man­u­fac­tur­ing. This makes us more in­ter­ested in in­vest­ing in coun­tries.” He added that “we con­tinue to look at Greece for ad­di­tional in­vest­ments.”
