Event Overview

On 2-3 May the 12th Euromoney Saudi Arabia Conference took place in Riyadh. Welcoming over 1700 attendees, 50 fantastic speakers and global media coverage, the conference successfully addressed the financial challenges and opportunities in the Kingdom.

The week kicked off on the 1 May with a new ticketed event on real estate investment trusts in the KSA where Euromoney welcomed speakers from Knight Frank, DLA Piper, Jadwa Investment, Baker and McKenzie and the Capital Market Authority. The sell-out event had a maximum capacity of just 50 participants providing the unique opportunity for delegates to discuss their questions and queries in a small, intimate setting with experts on REITs.

The main Saudi Arabia Conference 2017 started on the 2 May with an official exhibition opening and keynote address discussing Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030 by the Minister of Finance, H.E. Mr Mohammed Al-Jadaan. For the first time this year, His Excellency also took a seat for an exclusive onstage interview with Euromoney’s Christopher Garnett to delve deeper into the Ministry’s objectives for the year ahead.

The day continued with a series of international and Saudi keynote interviews with Daniel Pinto, CEO – Corporate and Investment Bank at JP Morgan, Matthieu Duncan, CEO of Natixis Asset Management, Mohammed El-Kuwaiz, Vice Chairman at the Capital Market Authority and Khalid Abdullah Al-Hussan, CEO of the Saudi Stock Exchange (Tadawul).

Following an exciting and jam packed morning, Euromoney then welcomed for the first time in 12 years of the conference H.E. Dr Ahmed Abdulkarim Alkholifey, Governor of the Saudi Arabian Monetary Authority, on stage for a keynote interview. Discussing monetary policy and capital market reforms, participants gained valuable insight on Saudi Arabia’s central bank policies.

The afternoon continued with a series of panel discussions on the Saudi economy, FinTech and debt capital markets, welcoming speakers from: Al Rajhi Capital, BNP Paribas, Booz Allen Hamilton, Citi, Fitch Ratings, HSBC, International Monetary Fund, Jadwa Investment, Mastercard, NCB Capital, SABIC, SEDCO Holding and Zurich Insurance.

Day two of the conference began with a keynote address and interview with Minister of Housing, H.E. Mr Majed bin Abdullah Al-Hogail, discussing Saudi Arabia’s housing market and targets to achieve Vision2030. Following the Minister of Housing we welcomed experts on real estate for a panel discussion looking at what Saudi Arabia is doing to create a vibrant and prosperous real estate market in the Kingdom.

Later on in the day, Euromoney held a dedicated session on entrepreneurship, innovation and SMEs welcoming H.E. Dr Ghassan Ahmed Al Sulaiman, Governor of the General Authority for Small and Medium Enterprises, to discuss the efforts of the newly formed Authority, followed by a panel discussion welcoming facilitators of SMEs: Endeavor Saudi Arabia, Badir Program for Technology Incubators, QNB and the Dharan Techno Valley Company.

The day came to a close with a lively debate on equity capital markets, discussing Saudi Aramco’s IPO and the development of equity capital markets in the KSA. With an optimistic outlook from all speakers, the panel was a perfect end to an exciting and informative conference.

Euromoney would like to thank all our sponsors, speakers and delegates, without whom the event would not be possible. We look forward to welcoming you all to the event again in 2018.
