  • What's the market outlook for 2024/25? Can we surpass the highs of 2022, and what might drive renewed momentum?
  • To what extent is the GCC IPO market being driven by government desire to increase economic diversification, to rebalance their portfolios or by a need for growth capital?

  • Will the growth of regional private equity funds help or hinder the IPO market?
  • How prepared are smaller GREs to undertake an IPO? What can be learned from previous successful deals?

  • Active vs. passive, growth vs. yield: How do local and international perspectives on investment in the region differ? And how does this impact their investment strategies?
  • Does international investment at scale require a more dynamic and larger local asset management industry?
  • Should the region more rapidly develop Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) and derivatives, and innovate new structured products? Why?
