Kuwait’s equity markets have gone through a remarkable series of reforms in recent years, and the state has been rewarded with upgrades by international index compilers and ballooning inflows of foreign investment. Enabling infrastructure and a robust legal framework are in place to ensure continued development, and demand for assets has been proven. Therefore, what is critical going forward is a greater supply of high-quality investable securities, from sovereign bonds to small company equity listings by businesses with solid track records. This chapter contains interviews with Khaldoun Al Tabtabaie, CEO, Kuwait Clearing Company; and Mohamed Al Osaimi, Acting CEO, Boursa Kuwait.
