Even if the signs of recovery aren’t fully apparent yet to the Irish people in their daily lives, the world is beginning to take notice. Financial markets are pricing Irish debt at the lowest rates in years; companies like Bloomberg are continuing to locate in Dublin and hire more high-skilled Irish workers; people from all over the world are moving back to Ireland looking for opportunity; and investors are starting to inject capital into the country’s real estate market.
As a leading global provider of essential news and information for financial professionals, our company is constantly analyzing the health and investment opportunity of various sectors, asset classes and industries. Looking at Ireland through a similar lens, it’s hard to not see it as a great long-term investment.
That’s why I think this is a great time to start feeling good about Ireland again.
