Financial Forum 2016


BMG Financial Group hosted its BMG Financial Forum at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, in the presence of honoured guests HRH Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge and HRH Prince Abdulaziz Al Saud hosted in partnership with Institutional Investor, a subsidiary of the publication Euromoney, the forum was structures around  the topic of Saudi Arabia’s “Vision 2030”. Panels at the forum included an in-depth insight into regional geopolitics, presented by the CEO of Naeem Holding, and renowned journalist, Hussein Shobokshi; and the Group Head, Sell Side Research of ICAP, Mr. Mazen Al Sudairi, discussed the Kingdom’s stock market outlook. This was followed by an interactive panel discussion of the economic prospects for the Kingdom, in light of “Vision 2030”. Moderated by Institutional Investor, this informative symposium was led by Machaal Karam, CEO of UCA; Samer Al Majali, CEO of Saudi Gulf; Abdullah Al Howaish, MD, Amlak International; and Saleh Al Omair, CEO of Nosha. Mr. Al Majali told the panel that he believed the Saudi Vision 2030 contained several positive components that will directly impact the aviation sector of Saudi Arabia. Correspondingly, the aviation sector, and its own forecast development will beneficially affect the objectives of the “Vision 2030” plan, thus both will mutually gain from the other. Mr. Al Majali pointed out that movements both to and from the Kingdom, of both people and good, is a critical element of the Saudi economy, and the aviation sector is working hard to facilitate this vital traffic. Based in Al Khobar, Saudi Gulf is one of the few Saudi airlines entirely owned by the private sector, and is committed to operating to the highest standards.
