In 2015, Saudi Arabia open its stock market to allow limited ownership by foreign institutional investors. Ever since late last year, the rules have been revamped and restrictions have been eased such as a reduction of value of assets required for Qualified Foreign Investors (QFI) from US$ 5 billion to US$ 1 billion and allowing them to own as much as 10% of a traded company, up from 5%.
