United Arab Emirates : Mashreq Gold brings Wealth Management into perspective and tackles the issue of heightened market volatility.

A two-day seminar exploring the topic on Why Diversification is Important in a Volatile Market? was held by Mashreq Gold, the Wealth Management Division in one of the UAEs leading financial institutions, Mashreq. The seminars took place in Dubai on 8th & 10th February in front of a group of investors as part of Mashreq Golds client engagement strategy.

Uncertainty in global markets, coupled with volatile oil-prices and regional instability has brought about fears of yet another global economic slowdown. Mashreqs two-day seminar was designed to calm those fears and to help ease the pressure of managing investments in a volatile market by sharing best practices on ways for portfolio holders to generate a good core of assets.

Commenting on the occasion, Ishrat Kiyani, Head of Mashreq Gold, Mashreq, said: Heightened volatility and turmoil on the global financial markets have created a nervous market environment with little risk appetite among investors. The trick here is not to pull out from the market altogether, but to choose a well-diversified, preferably global portfolio of assets. The truth is: there is no such thing as a risk-free investment choice; but there are strategies to avoid loss and part of this strategy is diversification.

During the seminar, investors were reminded to commit during times of crisis and regularly review their investment decisions. Leaders of the UAEs wealth management sector spoke about todays need for greater portfolio diversification including the benefits of a dynamically managed asset allocation policy.

From the investor point of view, one of the most important things you can do when markets get choppy is to diversify your asset portfolio, said Ishrat Kiyani. This is where Mashreq Gold could assist: We provide solid practical strategies for managing assets in volatile markets and help our customers obtain and maintain a certain lifestyle today and tomorrow.

Jane Davies, Senior Portfolio Manager who is an experienced multi-portfolio manager and involved in the development of investment approaches and wealth products also spoke at the event. She was accompanied by Stuart Cameron, Director, HSBC Asset Management, specialised in the distribution and sales for the MENA region, Abdul Kadir Hussain, Head of Mashreq Asset Management and Alex Suarez, Director of Investment Advisory at Mashreq Private Banking.
