Event History

FundForum Middle East- The MENA Investment Management Forum was launched in 2007 on the strength of the global FundForum International brand. Held for four consecutive years in Bahrain and then for two in Qatar, the event spent its 7th year in a new home- Dubai. In 2014 we will once again be hosting the event in Dubai. The event brings together the investment management community of the Middle East, with regional and international fund buyers to discuss the topics most pertinent to them.


Speakers are typically CEOs (or other C-Level executives) as well as portfolio managers from asset management firms and senior executives from wealth management platforms and institutional investors. Speakers from the last years include:

Unlike other events in the FundForum series, FundForum Middle East brings an institutional flavour to the program, looking at such topics as global asset allocation, wining institutional mandates as well as the needs of individual groups such as family offices; whilst also covering themes crucial to the retail part of the market, such as distribution, the changing needs of the HNWI and product development. For more information on the program and its highlights, take a look at The New-Look FundForum Middle East and download the latest agenda.
