As far as regional rankings are concerned, the institute’s data showed that Saudi Arabia came second in the Arab world after the UAE through its SAMA Foreign Holdings, whose assets stood at $676 billion, coming third worldwide. SAMA Foreign Holdings was followed by Kuwait Investment Authority with $410 billion, Qatar with $170 billion, Algeria with $77.2 billion, Libya with $66 billion, Oman with $8.2 billion and Bahrain with $7.1 billion.
