On 9 September, Euromoney Conferences will examine the obstacles that Kuwait’s financial sector faces, and the opportunities and challenges that arise from the volatile environment of the region. Questions that will be asked and debated include: The banking sector strategic direction, is it a new vision? Do banks and investment companies carry too much real estate risk? Competition, differentiation, innovation – do Kuwaiti Banks understand these words? Do they need to?
