Capital Markets

Bahrain 2019 Capital Markets

Despite macroeconomic challenges, the kingdom’s stock market has performed reasonably well over the past two years. Although listings activity has been weak recently, developments such as the introduction of a real estate investment trust in 2017 and the initial public offering of a local logistics operator in 2018 bode well for the market. A range of reforms being undertaken by the bourse, including new listing rules and plans for new products, are set to further support market liquidity and increase the exchange’s attractiveness.

This chapter contains an interview with Sheikh Khalifa bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa, CEO, Bahrain Bourse.
