Dear Colleague

Derivatives and structured products in the Middle East are on the verge of an explosion. After a fall in Middle Eastern stock markets early last year, closely followed by the ongoing global credit crisis, investors are now showing a huge appetite for derivative-based investments such as principal protected and constant proportion portfolio insurance (CPPI) products.
Euromoney Seminars’ Derivatives Middle East Conference will be your chance to hear firsthand from the leading industry practitioners about the latest derivatives trades being executed, the structures emerging, and the trends in both conventional and Islamic products.
