The overall performance of Oman’s capital markets in 2019 was somewhat mixed. While the country’s credit market continued to grow, underpinned by strong sovereign debt issuance, the equity market declined in the wake of a slowing economy. However, stock market valuations have improved considerably, a number of new debt issuances are in the pipeline and the Capital Market Authority is in the process of introducing a number of new laws that should be positive for the development of the sector. This chapter contains an interview with Abdulaziz Al Balushi, Group CEO, OMINVEST.
