Bulletin No. 1007

Featured Event

A Week of Banking  
HSBC said it is to buy out SwissLife Holdings’ ownership in two ventures for 228.8 million euros ($305 million). It will buy the remaining 50.01 percent stake it doesn’t already own in life insurer Erisa and property and casualty insurer Erisa IARD. The transaction is subject to approval by regulators.

Citigroup is expected to cut more than 15,000 jobs or move them to less expensive locations as part of a restructuring programme. Analysts expect the move to reduce costs by more than $2 billion a year. The review is likely to involve cuts in some of the regional headquarters’ operations.

Projects  of the Week



Abu Dhabi real estate construction sector
Until a few years back, Abu Dhabi emirate's construction sector was dominated by Oil & Gas projects and Independent Power and Water (IWPP) schemes.

Though there were few prestigious building projects, the building sector was completely over shadowed by the Oil & Gas and IWPP projects. Major development schemes were announced in the real estate sector, but were delayed or cancelled.
