GCC banks' financial profiles should remain stable in 2019, absent any unexpected geopolitical or oil-price shock.
Bank lending growth should stabilize at around the 5% mark over the next 12 months, as higher oil prices and stronger public investments raise economic growth in the region overall.
We expect profitability to stabilize--with return on assets at about 1.5%-1.7% and net interest margins at 3% on average in 2018--benefitting from the higher interest rates and significant non-interest-bearing deposits on banks' balance sheets.
International operations could pose a latent risk for some GCC banks. A few banks with exposure to Turkey will see some impact on their asset quality.
Three-quarters of the 24 GCC banks we rate carry a stable outlook. Negative outlooks are concentrated in Qatar and on a few banks in ......read more
By Ole Hansen, Head of Commodity Strategy at Saxo Bank
Dubai, UAE, September 23, 2018: The Bloomberg Commodity Index, which tracks the performance of 22 major commodity futures, rose from the ashes this past week. The 2% gain occurred after some early weakness after the US announcement of additional tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports.
The broad-based recovery that followed in global stocks and currencies was driven by a combination of the US tariffs coming in at the lower 10% bracket and China, while responding with its own counter tariffs, announcing plans to cut taxes, lift consumption, and lowering its average tariff rate on imports from most of its trading partners as soon as October.
While these developments may have helped sentiment, a proper de-escalation in China / US relations has yet to ......read more

September 11, 2018 - Dubai UAE: A 2016 report by McKinsey & Company found that 14 percent of millennials said they would not work in the oil and gas industry because of its negative image – the highest percentage of any industry.

This shift in influence is perhaps most exemplified by the long-awaited free trade agreement (FTA) between the European Union (EU) and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).
The six countries of the GCC represent an important ......read more
