Bonds & Loans Middle East Conference 2012, Dubai: Delegates at Middle East's premiere debt conference optimistic about future development of region's capital markets despite global volatility
Jacco Keijzer, RBS's Head of Debt Capital Markets, Middle East & Africa said: "Now more than ever before there is an informed, proactive and mature community at the heart of the developing regional debt markets. The macro-economic challenges unleashed several years ago still persist, so it is vital that as a market community we are able to share ideas and take the lead in such volatile times as well as chart the best course for the further growth and development of the capital markets. The annual 'Bonds and Loans' conference is now regarded as a crucial forum in this respect."
Attendees drew confidence from the fact that Middle East debt markets were agreed to be one of the few global, economic bright spots. Proactive policies of economic diversification and market development across the Middle East remain a priority, with both the public and private sector increasingly looking to the debt capital markets, alongside bank lending, as a means to securing financing - both short and long term. Alongside their international peers, local banks were also positioning themselves to play an increasingly pivotal role in the accelerated development of the regional debt markets and debt issuance.
