Debates over the sustainability of the current stock market boom remain hot in the Gulf state and elsewhere. "As the June inclusion of the UAE and Qatar stock indices in the MSCI emerging markets index approaches, we remain constructive on GCC equity and fixed income markets" said Arjuna Mahendran, the chief investment officer at Emirates NBD private banking
...and transparent final methodology that truly captures sources of systemic risk," said Kevin Nixon, managing director for regulatory affairs at IIF. "As the FSB moves forward it should not work under the assumption that entities posing a global systemic risk currently exist within the non-bank non-insurer space."
LEWIS: "Well that's one of the factors which investors are particularly worried about, is does China face a hard landing because of the financial tightening? Our view is that those fears are actually exaggerated, that the PBOC is trying to get the growth of credit down. If the numbers come in too weak, they easily have the fiscal and monetary space to reverse some of those policies. Indeed, we saw it amounting to perhaps a mini stimulus package announced last week. So first number- first quarter numbers, definitely bad but probably that will mark the low for China this year."
"Prospects for sustained higher growth beyond the near term hinge on reforms. Egypt needs to rectify serious macroeconomic imbalances as a prelude to tackling deeply embedded structural distortions in the economy."
