Fund Selector Middle East

Last Word Media has been serving the advisory channel in the Middle East since 2006 through its global leading brand International Adviser (IA). Over that period IA has successfully established itself as the number one media outlet for industry news amongst financial advisors in the region as evidenced by Insight Discovery’s Middle East Investment Panorama 2017 report.

Building off IA’s stellar reputation, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new brand Fund Selector Middle East (FSME) for the ever growing and influential international and domestic banking channel in the Middle East. FSME will provide unrivalled insight into the challenges of portfolio construction, the latest investment ideas, industry strategic developments and asset allocation trends throughout the region.

Having already hosted an inaugural roundtable last month, FSME will officially launch on 18 April with an event bringing together six asset management groups with an exclusive audience of fund selectors and influencers from global, local and private banks in the UAE.

October 2 will then see FSME go regional with a second event targeting a GCC wide audience of fund selectors. Our FSME Awards - to be handed out by an independent panel of regional influencers – will take place that same day.

Working closely with its sister publication Fund Selector Asia (FSA), the launch of FSME will enable asset managers to focus their sales and marketing efforts on international and local banks by reaching fund selectors, fund influencers, investment councillors, product managers and wealth management heads throughout the GCC.

Richard Simpson (Head of Middle East) and Rohit Vaswani (Head of Insight) will be leading the charge on this exciting new brand and channel for Last Word.
