State Street 2018
Middle East and North Africa
State Street commissioned Oxford Economics to conduct a survey of 306 investment professionals in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region during August and September of 2018.
Respondents represented sovereign funds, central banks, asset managers and pension funds. The survey captured views on MENA capital markets trends and evolving investment strategies.
Here’s what we found:
We discovered that 78 percent of survey respondents are optimistic that their own institution will achieve robust, sustainable growth over the next five years. In order to do so, investors are ramping up their growth strategy, with nearly half (41 percent) citing strengthening their in-house investment expertise as top priority.
