About the book
Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are potentially a treasure trove for asset managers. So how should AMCs best approach these wealthy Arabian nations?
The GCC counts Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain as members – all have investable wealth measured in the trillions of dollars. Additionally, they generate hundreds of billions in additional wealth with each passing year.
However, the Gulf region is fraught with political and operating risks. The capital markets are narrow, information is scarce, regulations vary dramatically and competition is fierce.
‘Gulf Asset Management: Oasis or Mirage?’ takes a critical look at the asset management industry in the Gulf and defines criteria required to succeed as an asset manager in the region.
