Around the World in 80 Days: Looking beyond oil in the UAE

Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank's Szymon Idzikowski weighs in on a common misconception, client preferences and his best investment call in this interview with Citywire.

We are speaking to fund selectors based in locations beyond the major financial centres, on an 80-day trip around the world. Today, we explore a destination in Middle East, in a region best known for its oil reserves: United Arab Emirates.

Because the Middle East meets most the world’s energy needs, investors naturally gravitate towards the sector. 

Clients of the Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank also exhibit a strong home bias and like familiar names.

But the financial services sector actually constitutes the majority of the local index, says fund manager Szymon Idzikowski. 

Idzikowski talks about the impact of this misconception, other client preferences and his best investment call, in this interview with Citywire
