When a region finds itself in a mess, the money from that region will find its way to other parts of the world. That's how the Middle East money have found its way as the majority financiers in the just released Hollywood blockbuster "2 Guns", starring Denzel Washington, with a $43 million+ investment.
FFA Private Bank, a Middle Eastern investment bank based in Lebanon and Dubai, has gathered 40 investors to invest a majority share in the $86 million movie, alongside other investors such as a Delaware-based "Dubai Media LLC". (Like the Hungarian airline that DubaiBeat.com featured last week, this investment also started with an email: “A couple of years ago, by chance, I was sent an email from a friend from overseas who said we have this interesting opportunity” the head of investment banking at FFA, Julien Khabbaz told the Daily Star newspaper)
