Could it be wise to invest in the Iranian currency, also known as the rial? Or might it be better to steer clear of the Iranian rial? Is there a potential for return, or would it be a more prudent decision to completely avoid the rial and look elsewhere for investment opportunities? Iran, a country rich in history and culture, faces challenging economic realities. The country struggles with extremely high inflation. The official figures are noteworthy as they show that inflation has doubled over recent years. Particularly worrying is that inflation in 2022 stood just above 50%. For comparison, the inflation in the Eurozone in 2022 was only 9.2% – a significant difference illustrating the complexity of the Iranian economic situation.
