Kuwait 2022 Capital Markets

While many established global stock markets have seen mixed performance in recent years, Kuwait’s has shown positive gains, highlighting the robust nature of its capital markets. With an economy backed by rising oil prices and a solid, well-capitalised financial sector, the country continues to see international investor interest grow. Indeed, its benchmark indices recorded positive performances throughout 2021 and were among the best-performing markets in the Gulf region. A stronger regulatory framework has been created, while new products and financial technology developments have helped the country’s capital markets recover rapidly from the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Further regulatory reform, more listings and the expansion of a wider bond and sukuk (Islamic bonds) market are in the pipeline, as the financial sector looks to capitalise on Kuwait’s strong economic performance amid global uncertainties.

This chapter contains an interview with Mohamed Al Osaimi, CEO, Boursa Kuwait.
