Gulf investors regain a quiet confidence in overseas investments, finds PwC report

<p>PwC has published its new report titled &lsquo;Resetting the Compass: Navigating success in deal-making for mature market sellers and high growth market buyers&rsquo;. Companies in high-growth markets (HGM) invested US$161 billion into mature market companies between 2008 and 2012, outstripping their combined investment of US$151 billion in the opposite direction, according to the report. In 2013, the volume of outbound deals from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to mature markets ranked higher than the average reported over the last five years. The UK and Europe continue to hold strong appeal for GCC buyers, accounting for the majority of mature market deals from the GCC. The GCC region&rsquo;s sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) and state-owned enterprises continue to drive much of the outbound deal value but have cut back on the size of their overseas investments into mature markets since 2007/2008.</p>

Priceless: Volunteers Bring Financial Literacy to the Masses

Despite efforts to support financial literacy, only 35 percent of teens know how to manage a credit card and only 20 percent of teachers feel prepared to teach the subject. To help combat this critical social gap, some leading companies have started initiatives. For example, PwC is mobilizing its 35,000 people who are skilled in finance, accounting and business to address youth education with a focus on financial literacy. The firm’s centerpiece commitment, formally titled PwC’s Earn Your Future is a five-year commitment to reach more than 2.5 million students and educators and represents a $160 million investment for the firm, $60 million in cash and 1 million service hours.
