While the world’s focus has been on the emerging economies of the BRIC’s countries—Brazil, Russia, India, and China—as the favored destination for investors and businesses seeking to explore new markets, this panel of esteemed speakers addressed investment opportunities in Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Cooperation Council and Egypt. This engaging panel highlighted the fact that not only is the Middle East a strategically important market but, given its population and demographics, it is an equally attractive destination for those seeking healthy returns on investment and new business frontiers.

Speakers include:

  • Ed Burton, President, US-Saudi Arabian Business Council
  • Dilip Massand, Managing Director, SAS Management
  • Laura Osman, Senior Managing Director & Portfolio Manager, Concord International Investments Group, LP
  • Mahmoud Salem, Managing Director, Depositary Receipts Division, BNY Mellon
  • Samer Solh, Managing Director, Amwal Asset Management
