View in Online Reader

Despite being a stable and growing bourse for a number of years, authorities see a broader, deeper market as a strategic goal to help create economic opportunity. Sustained dedication to that cause has paid off in recent years, chiefly in the form of an increased flow of initial public offerings. The inclusion of sharia-compliant instruments looks set to take off, meaning diversification of the market should continue.
This chapter contains an interview with Sheikh Abdullah Al Salmi, 
 Executive President, Capital Markets Authority; and a viewpoint from Shaheen Al Balushi, CEO, Oman Orix.
