  • Today, we are participating in the 7th edition of the FII event in Riyadh, which witnesses further development each year and is considered by investors as a global event they add to their annual calendar. All global financial capitals eagerly anticipate this event, as it has become a global forum for exchanging views and conducting deals.

  • Amid the current geopolitical situation in the world, specifically in China, the US, and Europe, investors are currently turning their attention to the GCC in general, where attractive investment opportunities are available. Saudi Arabia, in particular, is considered the true compass for investors.

  • Investors view oil production, cash flows, the youth generation, and education as significant opportunities in the GCC, especially in Saudi Arabia, where everyone is rushing to open their offices. We see a very promising future in Saudi Arabia.

  • Interest rates may not rise significantly from their current levels, nor may they decrease significantly, leading to a repricing of risks. Investors can find excellent investment opportunities in private debt, aircraft and ship leasing, and commercial real estate in the US. There are several investment opportunities, allowing investors interested in investing for a period ranging from three to five years to achieve double the return they could have achieved in the past three years with the same level of risk.

  • Most investors are apprehensive when geopolitical conflicts arise. However, preparedness is beneficial in such circumstances, as it allows them to invest the funds they have saved before the conflict period and achieve double the returns with the same level of risk.
