Chairman’s update: Nick Wilson, Chairman of Gulf Investment Fund
Gulf stock markets were hit hard by the market crash and the plunge in oil prices provoked by the impact of Covid 19 pandemic earlier this year. GCC markets fell 33% at one point and have since risen 20% from their lows. Oil dipped to $19 a barrel in April, although as global economic activity restarts, Brent is now trading around $40.
