Pages : 28

Executive Summary

The Saudi Arabian Capital Market is the largest in GCC. It constitutes 81.5% of the market capitalization and 87.9% of the region's traded value. The number of financial services firms in the KSA has increased since 2006 in the aftermath of Tadawul stock market crash and institution of capital market reforms.
KSA Capital markets are dominated by the larger players. In Asset management, the top 10 firms with the largest assets under management (AUM) had a total market share of over 80%. Investment Banking (IB) in KSA made big strides in 2019 with the top 10 firms reporting a total of SAR 643 million of revenues from IB, representing a 50.6% increase from 2018.

Out of 31 brokers in Saudi Arabia, the top 10 commands about 78% of the market share in value traded. The majority of the brokers witnessed a decrease in revenues in 2019. However, 2020 is expected to see increase in brokerage revenues as trading volumes in the Tadawul stock exchange was more than twice that of 2019.

Research services are also provided by Saudi financial firms mostly on a complimentary basis to aid investors’ decision making and increase the wallet share of trading. Most firms also have a social media presence, but the activity level varies across organizations. Twitter is the most preferred social media platform. They use the platform to popularize their products/service offerings and provide market updates regularly.
