The Interview ·
Featuring Matein Khalid, Jawad Mian

Published on: May 13th, 2016 • Duration: 39 minutes

Jawad Mian sits down with his friend, Matein Khalid, Executive Director of Asas Capital, who gives us a true insider's view on the GCC region. Assured that there is no chance of Riyadh devaluing the Riyal, Matein lays out a clear bullish case for oil, addressing the possibility of a coordinated attempt by central banks to target a lower dollar and gives us a guided tour of the opportunities and risks posed amongst the Gulf region's disparate economies.

    Like the way this man thinks! Again, so many opportunities, so little CASH!!! Would love to hear more from him. Sad to hear that Canada is a third world country !

    So...the way the US gets to NIRP is if Auntie J raises and causes a Recession she will have to reverse course and go back to 0 and then NIRP to extricate herself. Only at RV can you find this stuff!

    Enjoyed the CB collusion theory.&connecting dots on the oil price. Had a hard time with them on Pakistan. Different value systems I suppose. Does Matein remind you of Varys from GOT? :) RVTV Rules!

    Wonderful stuff! Not just why and how things are bad, but he talks about actual opportunities to make money! More of 'how to make money' and less bit**ing how things are terrible when they just are.

    Clearly smart guys, but I hear a lot of contradictory data in their theses....perhaps its just my own bias clouding the waters.

    Find it difficult for house of Saud and the Kremlin to agree on anything. Saudi and Iran haven't agreed on anything for the past 1000 years .

    There R guys that are knocking the ball out of the park this year but it's not the guys we are seeing here. The hedge funds that have figured out how to play the Fed backed US Market R getting killed

    Will EMs be able to take the baton from the weak and slow DMs? I do not know. The funding economies need to be able to fund and EU and Japan are in no condition to do just that.

    I find it difficult to reconcile their bullish case for the US economy with my own. Almost every indicator is rolling over. NPLs rising. Growth slowing. Labor market is quite loose. The list goes on.
