Middle East: In and Out - Executive Summary September 2016
MAJOR INCREASE IN CROSS-REGIONAL CAPITAL AND ITS IMPACT:
- A major increase in capital flows from the Middle East came despite the fact that the 2015 oil price finished below its level at the start of the year.
GROWING INTEREST IN SPECIALISED ASSET CLASSES:
- While the Middle East remains a comparatively small investment market, investors are focused on development plays and increasingly on alternative investment classes, such as hotels, residential, education and healthcare.
