KUWAIT: Boursa Kuwait organized its first Virtual Corporate Day in collaboration with HSBC, one of the largest banking and financial services institutions in the world, from 9 until 10 September 2020. The conference, held virtually because of the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, was attended by nine companies listed in the Kuwaiti capital market, who met with 31 of the world’s leading institutional investors and asset management firms over the two-day period.
The listed Kuwaiti companies came from the banking, telecom, industrials and the consumer services sectors, holding 160 meetings with institutional investors and asset management firms including commercial banks, mutual funds, hedge funds, pension funds and insurance firms. The meetings enabled the international investors to gain an in-depth understanding of the benefits and opportunities of investing in the Kuwaiti companies, and offered deeper insights into the financial performance, business strategy and outlook of the publicly traded companies.
