Abstract

Recently, the Saudi Capital Market Authority (CMA) opened the door for foreign investors to invest directly in the stock exchange market (Tadawul) to gain more welfare from their investments. Along with this step, the CMA released a set of Rules for Qualified Foreign Financial Institutions Investments (RQFFII) in Listed Shares 2015 that aimed to attract and protect the shareholders' rights. In this research project, the RQFFII have been examined to discover the level of attraction that these Saudi rules offer to foreign investment. The project also aimed to highlight strengths and weaknesses in the rules with regard to the protection shareholders' rights. This thesis explored the possible influence of foreign investments in the Saudi stock exchange. The research project aimed to increase the CMA and shareholders' awareness and knowledge in regard to these rules which lead to more protection of the local stock exchange.
