BlackRock's Larry Fink says Middle East must avoid other regional investing mistakes

BlackRock CEO: We will play a role in working with domestic investors in Middle East 39 Mins Ago | 03:29

The Middle East must tread carefully to ensure it does not make the same investment mistakes as Europe, according to the CEO of the world’s largest asset manager.

“The only way to get more financial inclusion in this region and every region is to have greater participation in the capital market through equities in their retirement plans,” BlackRock Chief Executive Larry Fink told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble during a panel session in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

“The region should not make the mistakes that so many other regions (have made), like in Europe, where there is such shallow participation by locals in investing in their own capital markets,” he added.

His comments come at a time when some of the world’s leading financiers are returning to Saudi Arabia after the oil-rich kingdom held some of the year’s largest merger and bond deals.

International investors flocked to lend money to Saudi Arabia’s hugely profitable state-owned oil company earlier this month.

Demand for Saudi Aramco’s bonds surged above $100 billion, according to a source familiar with the situation, more than 10 times the $10 billion that had been expected.

Nonetheless, BlackRock’s Fink said it would be “essential” for Middle East governments to drum up support from domestic investors too.

“I think that’s going to be one of the critical characteristics to build and BlackRock will play a big role in both working with the domestic savers and building their retirement, plus bringing in international investing to invest side by side,” Fink said.

Bad press about the Middle East won't stop me investing there, BlackRock's Fink says

BlackRock CEO: We will play a role in working with domestic investors in Middle East 53 Mins Ago | 03:29

Negative media reports about the Middle East and the ruling authorities in the region are not a reason to end investment plans, according to the CEO of BlackRock.

“The fact that there are issues in the press does not tell me I must run away from a place. In many cases it tells me I should run to and invest because what we are most frightened of are things that we don’t talk about,” BlackRock Chief Executive Larry Fink told CNBC’s Hadley Gamble during a panel session in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Fink said he felt the power of the press was playing a good role in addressing issues in the Middle East and he was witnessing continued reform.

“Most issues that are being addressed in the media are (being) mitigated. And that is why long-term optimism is generally the right strategy for most investing over a long horizon,” Fink said.

Saudi Arabia has come in for renewed criticism after it introduced an antiterrorism law in November 2017 that laid out lengthy prison terms for offenses linked to political and religious speech.

Authorities there have reportedly used the legislation to jail prominent women’s rights activists, journalists, and other government critics.

Nonetheless, BlackRock’s Fink said changes he had witnessed in the kingdom over the past few years had been “pretty amazing” and that a modernization across the wider Middle East was in place.

“I see governments willing to move forward. I see governments in the region focusing on how to widen financial inclusion and increase social inclusion,” he said.

Trump Middle East peace plan is coming after Ramadan, Jared Kushner says

Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner said Tuesday that the Trump administration will put forward its long-awaited plan for peace in the Middle East after the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in early June. Kushner, who is also the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, provided few details about the plan to reconcile the disputes between Israelis and Palestinians. But he assured that the proposal itself is “very detailed” and will hopefully represent a “comprehensive vision” for peace.

Trump Middle East peace plan is coming after Ramadan, Jared Kushner says

Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner said Tuesday that the Trump administration will put forward its long-awaited plan for peace in the Middle East after the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan in early June.

Kushner, who is also the son-in-law of President Donald Trump, provided few details about the plan to reconcile the disputes between Israelis and Palestinians. But he assured that the proposal itself is “very detailed” and will hopefully represent a “comprehensive vision” for peace.

“We were getting ready at the end of last year” to unveil the plan, but that rollout was interrupted by the Israeli election, Kushner said during an interview at the TIME 100 Summit in New York on Tuesday.

“Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu had a great victory, and he’s in the middle of forming his coalition, and once that’s done we’ll probably be in the middle of Ramadan, so we’ll wait until after Ramadan and then we’ll put our plan out,” Kushner said.

Asked whether the plan would call for a two-state solution between Israel and Palestine, Kushner declined to say, but added that “we are going to lay that out very clearly” in the report.

“There will be tough compromises for both,” Kushner said.

The strong alliance forged between Trump and Netanyahu, who won a record fifth term in a close Israeli election earlier in April, has reportedly put a strain on the prospect of achieving a two-state compromise.

Less than a month before the conservative prime minister’s reelection, Trump announced that the U.S. recognized the Golan Heights as a sovereign part of Israel — a controversial move that drew criticism from many of America’s international allies.

In a video posted Tuesday, Netanyahu said that he wants a “new community” in the Golan Heights to be named after Trump.

Kushner also said he would be sending an immigration plan to Trump by next week.

The White House advisor, who has been tasked by Trump with leadership roles on a range of issues including sentencing reform and criminal justice reform, noted that he had not originally gone to Washington, D.C., to work on immigration reform.

Kushner said that “probably at the end of this week, next week, we’ll present it [to Trump] again and he’ll make some changes, likely, and then he’ll decide what he wants to do with it.”

The main prongs of the plan touch on securing the southern border and working toward a merit-based immigration system, Kushner said.

The president congratulated his son-in-law in a tweet shortly following the interview.

This is a developing story. Please check back for updates.

Millennials are being left out of the world’s middle class, research says

Millennials are being squeezed out of the world’s middle class as incomes stagnate and costs rise, according to research by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). In contrast, 68% of “baby boomers” — those born between 1942 and 1964 — were middle class.

Millennials are being left out of the world's middle class, research says

Millennials are being squeezed out of the world’s middle class as incomes stagnate and costs rise, according to research by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

In a report published Wednesday, the 36-nation intergovernmental economic body said younger people were struggling to make it into that bracket, while those who were already included were finding it difficult to maintain their position. It said it was due to deteriorating income growth coupled with increasing costs of housing and education.

According to the report, 60% of millennials across the 40 countries surveyed were categorized as middle income. In contrast, 68% of “baby boomers” — those born between 1942 and 1964 — were middle class.

Breaking it down further, only 53% of millennials in the U.S. were middle class, the data showed. Just 59% of British millennials made it in, compared to 69% in Japan and 66% in Australia.

The report said middle incomes rose by just 0.3% per year over the past decade, but noted that housing is now the single largest spending item for middle-income households, taking up around one-third of disposable income — which is up 25% since the 1990s.

The OECD defined middle class as those who earned between 75% and 200% of the median national income. Across the 40 countries included in its study, 61% of the population qualified as middle class.

Under the OECD’s definition, 51% of the U.S. population fell into the middle class category — putting it behind most other OECD members. China, meanwhile, had a middle class rate of 48%.

“Today the middle class looks increasingly like a boat in rocky waters,” said OECD Secretary General Angel Gurria. “Governments must listen to people’s concerns and protect and promote middle class living standards. This will help drive inclusive and sustainable growth and create a more cohesive and stable social fabric.”

Subj: Accelerating in the Middle East

Five years ago, Uber launched in the Middle East. It was the start of an incredible journey, with millions of riders and drivers finding new ways to move and work in a dynamic region that’s become so important to Uber. Now Pakistan is one of our fastest-growing markets in the world, women are driving with Uber across Saudi Arabia, and we chose Cairo to launch our first Uber Bus product late last year.

Today we are taking the next step in this journey—well, it’s more like a leap, and a big one: in a few minutes, we’ll announce that we’ve agreed to acquire Careem. Importantly, we intend to operate Careem independently, under the leadership of co-founder and current CEO Mudassir Sheikha. I’ve gotten to know both co-founders, Mudassir and Magnus Olsson, and what they have built is truly extraordinary. They are first-class entrepreneurs who share our platform vision and, like us, have launched a wide range of products—from digital payments to food delivery—to serve consumers.

I expect many of you will ask how we arrived at this structure, meaning allowing Careem to maintain an independent brand and operate separately. After careful consideration, we decided that this framework has the advantage of letting us build new products and try new ideas across not one, but two, strong brands, with strong operators within each. Over time, by integrating parts of our networks, we can operate more efficiently, achieve even lower wait times, expand new products like high-capacity vehicles and payments, and quicken the already remarkable pace of innovation in the region.

This acquisition is subject to regulatory approval in various countries, which we don’t expect before Q1 2020. Until then, nothing changes. And since both companies will continue to largely operate separately after the acquisition, very little will change in either teams’ day-to-day operations post-close.

Today’s news is a testament to the incredible business our team has worked so hard to build. It’s a great day for the Middle East, for the region’s thriving tech sector, for Careem, and for Uber.

Uber on,

Dara

UAE climate minister outlines top threats as Abu Dhabi hosts the Middle East's first Ocean Summit

Abu Dhabi is hosting the sixth annual World Ocean Summit this week, drawing attention to the efforts the small Gulf emirate is making to combat climate change and the growing threat it poses to the region.

It’s the first time the event, part of the Economist Group’s World Ocean Initiative, is being hosted in the Middle East, a region known more for its fossil fuel industry than its environmental advocacy.

Thani Al Zeyoudi, the United Arab Emirates’ minister of climate change and environment, wants to change that image. He’s lauded the event as proof that his country, and the wider Gulf region, can play a leading role in combating threats to the world’s seas.

“We’re sending a message to the region and the world that the ocean has been and will continue always to be an integral part of our economy and our society,” he told CNBC’s Dan Murphy Tuesday, emphasizing the event’s theme of “building bridges.”

“Governments cannot do it alone, NGOs (non-governmental organization) cannot do it alone. We have to work together and we have to bring the private sector on board with us.”

Bill Gates says wealth has made him happier—but 'you don't need a billion' to get the same result

Money may be able to buy happiness after all, Bill Gates suggested during his seventh “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit on Monday.

A user asked, “Do you think being a billionaire has made you a happier person than if you were just a middle class person?” The Microsoft co-founder responded: “Yes. I don’t have to think about health costs or college costs. Being free from worry about financial things is a real blessing.”

He added, though, that “of course, you don’t need a billion to get to that point. We do need to reduce the cost growth in these areas” — health care and education — “so they are accessible to everyone.” Both are systems in which he and his wife Melinda have invested billions and which they are are determined to help improve.

Gates, who is worth nearly $100 billion, is not the only high earner with this mentality.

After researching more than 1,200 self-made millionaires, author Steve Siebold found that the wealthy aren’t afraid to admit that money can solve most problems.

“The rich see money as a positive tool that has the power to create freedom and opportunity for themselves and their families,” Siebold writes in “How Rich People Think.” After all, “if you have a problem, and you can make it disappear by writing a check, you don’t have a problem.”

Accepting that money can create options is a key reason the rich continue to generate more wealth, he says: “While the world class sees money as a critical resource that opens up endless possibilities, the middle class is demonizing it and denying its importance.”

Huawei’s new foldable phone will top both Apple and Samsung in price, costing around $2600

Huawei launched a foldable smartphone on Sunday, striking back at Samsung just days after it launched the first consumer-ready foldable device. Huawei launched the Mate X at an event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The Chinese tech giant said the phone will start at a whopping price of 2299 euros (approximately $2600), and will be available in the middle of 2019. That price tops the high end of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, which will sell for an eye-popping $1980, as well as Apple’s premium iPh

American officials have warned against using Huawei devices out of fear they will enable Chinese spying, charges the company denies. Meanwhile, Huawei has found itself stuck in the middle of tensions between the U.S. and China in the race to roll out 5G networks.
