|| Quick Notes from Latin American Mid-East Forum

We were busy today in the Latin American Mid-East Forum. Some quick notes from our twitter updates in case you've missed them. (We will update with more interviews and presentations shortly)


  • Felix Herlihy (Istithmar World) saying don't rush into investments, as "everything" looks cheap these days! Invest in what you know.
  • Pablo Fetter (Istithmar World): Dubai is the Miami of its region and very attractive place for investment
  • Pablo Fetter: oil demand is down but supply is down too (Canada oil sands only make sense with like $80). So expect higher oil prices (~$70)
  • Moderator: what is different in Latin American real estate and Dubai? Answer: We do things in "millions", but they do it here in "billions"!
  • Latin American real estate panel participant: "Architecture" and nice buildings are good, but Dubai also needs to focus on "Urbanization"
