The National, an Abu Dhabi based newspaper, has a lengthy interview with four fund managers in Singapore, New York, London and Abu Dhabi to answer questions related to the entry of the UAE and Qatar into the MSCI Emerging Markets Index. The countries were upgraded from the MSCI Frontier Markets Index because of increased economic stability and improved access to international investors in their nascent stock markets.

The fund managers interviewed included:

  • Mark Mobius, Singapore-based executive chairman of Templeton Emerging Markets Group
  • Andrew Jones, portfolio manager at New York-based emerging markets equities at PineBridge Investments
  • Sachin Mohindra, portfolio manager at Invest AD in Abu Dhabi
  • Edward Evans, client portfolio manager for emerging markets equity at Schroders in London

The fund managers were asked about how attractive UAE and Qatar shares are and what local sectors they preferred.
