Mr. Rashid Bin Ali Al Mansoori, CEO of Qatar Stock Exchange (QSE) will participate in the Working Committee Meetings of the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE). The meetings will take place on 24th January 2017, in Frankfort, Germany.

Mr. Al-Mansoori will also participate in the Roundtable in London to discuss Enhancing Emerging Market Liquidity, where the WFE and Oliver Wyman will bring together exchanges and the buy side. This event builds on the recent joint WFE-Oliver Wyman paper on the issue, and a very successful initial roundtable discussion held in Cartagena, Colombia with the World Bank and emerging market regulators at the WFE’s General Assembly & Annual Meeting in November 2016.

The report, published in October 2016, identified three key areas that exchanges and regulators can focus on to grow liquidity. These areas are the development of a diverse investor base, increasing the pool of securities and associated financial products, and the creation of an attractive market environment. The roundtable will include participants from exchanges from developed and emerging markets along with senior executives from the world’s leading buy-side institutions. QSE has joined WFE in 2013 and has been an active member ever since and QSE has been represented in the Board of Directors from the start since Al-Mansoori was elected a Board Director in 2014 representing MENA, Europe and the Middle East. QSE organized the very successful General Assembly in Doha in 2015.
