Global Investor Middle East Asset Management Forum

9 June, 2017

On 15 May, 2017, FXTM took part in the 2nd annual Middle East Asset Management Forum, held at the Gulf Hotel in Bahrain. Hussein Al Sayed, FXTM’s Chief Market Strategist, moderated a panel titled “The outlook for asset management amid Western political upheaval and the strong dollar era,” where the speakers included HSBC’s Francis Dassou, Head of Securities Services Bahrain and Regional Head of Global Custody, and Redha Al Ansari, Research Team Leader at Thomson Reuters. 

Some of the key topics for the panel included:

  • The outlook for the US economy and markets in the Trump era of renegotiated trade deals and promises of stronger infrastructure.
  • Emerging markets and how fixed income investors could approach them.
  • The rally of emerging market equity indices, and which sectors and markets might under- and over-perform as a result.
  • What a strong dollar means for emerging market currencies and the flow of funds.

The Middle East Management Forum is hosted by ISF and the Central Bank of Bahrain, bringing together leading industry experts, delegates and analysts to discuss the most informative hot financial topics. Other participants in the forum included directors from PwC and Central Bank of Bahrain, as well as Al Mal Capital and Central Bank of Kuwait.

FXTM is honoured to have been a part of this important forum, as it broadened its presence in the Gulf and MENA region and furthered its reputation as an authority in its field.
