“Countries of central and eastern Europe, like Slovakia, offer large prospects to assets administrators because of the growing wellbeing of their citizens,” said Adam Lessing, who heads the Vienna-based department of Fidelity Worldwide Investment for Austria and eastern Europe and who is also responsible for the entry of the company in Slovakia.

“In Slovakia there is a strong demand for alternatives to existing investment offers,” added Lessing. “We see, for example, the growing interest in stock funds from Asia and developing countries as well as products such as bond funds.”
