the importance of research (more so in a largely under-researched market),
BankMuscat has steadily strengthened its research capabilities. The IBD research
team compiles economic, market, industry and company data to interpret and
anticipate developments that affect the values of securities. Our research team
focuses on providing company reports that have been prepared after extensive
interaction with all levels of management and site visits. These reports are
then reviewed every quarter, with updates incorporating the latest developments.
This periodic review of the company's status keeps the investor informed of any
material changes that might be necessary for reviewing
investment decisions. The weekly publication, 'Oman this Week', provides a
weekly round up
of markets and other major issues in Oman, while the 'BankMuscat Daily' offers
view of daily market movements.
BankMuscat's research strength flows from:
1. Tracking 12 sectors and 35 companies on a regular basis representing 85%
of market capitalization.
2. Comprehensive library and database on the economy, stock market and listed
3. Regular interaction with the management of the companies.
