Exchange Houses

he impact of Russo-Ukrainian war last year is pervasive on Exchange House business around the world. With recent willingness of Saudi Arabia to settle their oil trades in currencies other than the US dollar, the petrodollar regime being challenged, has given rise to currency risks, which are heavily disruptive to Exchange business particularly in the Middle East. Another paradigm created by China’s drive to expand its Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC), “the e-yuan”, is hinting at new avenues for other countries. In spite of the globally changing monetary landscape, the Exchange House business in the GCC has evolved and streamlined for the better. Forbes has cited the leading Exchange Houses such as LuLu (UAE), Al Ansari (UAE), Al Mulla (Kuwait), Alfardan (Qatar), and Purshottam Kanji (Oman) as being the Top 5 GCC Exchange Houses Going Digital.
