    Thanks for the update !!
    (Didn't you forgot M.A.D. ?)


    What do you exactly mean with your comment ('please note that gambling is not legal in Mongolia") on Monvest ?
    That it is a state monopoly (allowed to a company) ? Or really forbidden ? And are Mongolians real gamblers like Chinese ?


    Many thanks.

    Author’s reply » Greetings Schumpeter_1,


    M.A.D. = Real Estate Mongolia. Real Estate Mongolia, which is on the list, is the name of the investment company that will IPO while M.A.D. Investment Solutions will continue to service individual clients.


    Regarding gambling:
    a) it really is not legal according to several people I made inquiries with;
    b) as I understand it, there was legalized gambling for a while and it was viewed as bad for the society and removed;
    c) there are parties trying to set up a casino near the new airport being built; or elsewhere; but these casinos would be for foreigners only;
    d) thus, I'm unclear on how this lottery will work and what the legal framework for it will be; but I'm keeping an eye on it.
