Deutsche Bank announced Tuesday the opening of The Saudi Capital Markets Conference in London, United Kingdom. Organized by Deutsche Securities Saudi Arabia (DSSA) in coordination with the Capital Market Authority (CMA) and the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul), the conference is being held at Deutsche Bank’s offices in London on Sept. 27-28, 2017.

The Conference aims to promote the Saudi Capital Markets as well as highlighting the overall positive investment environment in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to global asset managers.

Senior Government Representatives and CEOs of leading Saudi Arabian companies will be attending the two-day event, which will see them address a select group of local and international institutional investors in both group and individual meeting formats.

Khalid Al Hussan, CEO of the Tadawul, said: “Through our Qualified Foreign Investor (QFI) program and other far-ranging market reforms, the Tadawul has made significant progress in improving the investment environment in the Saudi Capital Market and aligning it with international standards and practices to be more attractive for both local and international investors, further consolidating our position as the biggest equities market in the region. The Deutsche Bank conference is an opportunity to deepen our engagement with the international investment community and demonstrate our commitment to maintaining momentum in further enhancing our transparency, high levels of corporate governance, and operational efficiency.”

Tamim Jabr, Chief Executive Officer of DSSA, said “we are proud to be hosting the CMA and Tadawul along with representatives from some of Saudi Arabia’s leading companies at this prestigious event.”

He added “Saudi Arabia continues to attract global institutional investors driven by the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 initiatives. The CMA and Tadawul have always been pro-active in developing the capital markets by enhancing regulations, upgrading infrastructure, introducing new products and actively engaging with investors and market participants.”

The Saudi Capital Markets Conference is set to attract over 150 representatives of global institutional investors, Saudi government agencies and corporate entities.
