HSBC Holdings Plc’s affiliate in Saudi Arabia is ready to “compete aggressively” to regain market share in corporate lending after acquiring Alawwal Bank.
“We have no appetite whatsoever to continue to lose market share,” Saudi British Bank’s Managing Director David Dew said in an interview in Riyadh. “For SABB, margins as a whole have peaked for this particular interest rate cycle and are now on a downward trend.”
The lender also plans to boost mortgages this year, easing its so far conservative approach to home loans, he said. Mortgages in the kingdom are soaring as the government seeks to grow home ownership. The number of home loans in the kingdom rose almost threefold in 2019 from a year earlier, according to central bank data.
“We’re looking to move our risk appetite to some extent,” Dew said. “It’s unlikely to go fully in line with where the overall market seems to be, but we do expect to see some mortgage growth in SABB in 2020.”

Dubai-based retail developer Majid Al Futtaim said on Monday its annual EBITDA and revenue edged a tick higher, sharply slowing from the pace of growth seen in 2018, amid challenging conditions in its key Middle East markets.
Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) for the year ended Dec. 31, 2019 rose to 4.6 billion dirhams ($1.25 billion), a 1% rise from the prior year.
Revenue also climbed 1% to 35.2 billion dirhams, compared with an 8% growth in the year-ago period.
The retail sector in Dubai - one of the world’s leading shopping capitals - has taken a hit from lower property rates and oil prices.

Artichokes https://wcs4.blogspot.com/2020/02/artichokes.html Blue-green artichoke leaves.
It's time to start thinking about the yard and garden again. I've got some winter pruning to do now. Roses, hydrangea, and a lilac need to be cut back. The plot of daisies, my rosemary patch, and the bed of Jerusalem artichokes need to be cut and cleared of last year's growth. A few mild, dry days will be welcomed.

La Fab Gallery http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/IPreferParis/~3/6S2Pq4HuyoA/la-fab-gallery-.html AGNES B-1

Iconic French fashion designer Agnes B. has always had a penchant for art. Way before Agnes Troublé became a designer, she graduated from Ecole du Louvre, majoring in art history, and was an intern at a gallery on Ave. Kleber when she was seventeen. Falling into fashion accidentally when Elle Magazine picked up on her savvy street style, she was an made a junior editor. Next she had freelance stints in the 1970s, designing clothes at various French fashion houses, before striking out in 1974 with her own brand, Agnes B. She launched her first shop on rue du Jour, steps away from the then, gritty Les Halles district. The brand quickly became a major success, and added menswear in 1981, followed by their first shop outside of France, in New York in 1982. Agnes B. is now a worldwide brand.  

Art was still in the forefront of Troublé’s DNA, and in 1984 she opened a gallery space next door to the flagship store on rue du Jour, along with a bookshop that stocked art books on flat tables, so customers could browse them easily. The gallery displayed works by international, contemporary artists and Troublé built up an impressive personal art collection. Agnes B. also expanded into the film world, with their own production company and partnering with director Harmony Korine. A foundation was founded to fund artists projects and social organizations.  

In 2017, to further expand her commitment to the arts, she met with the mayor of 13th arrondissement, Jérôme Coumet, so she could establish a new gallery space, La Fab.  

Located near the Mitterand Library, on Place Jean Michel Basquiat, the gallery designed by SOA Architects and was christened earlier this month. Is it just happenstance that the gallery is located on a square named after the pre-eminent American street artist from the 1980s, who Troublé is an avid collector of?  

I visited the gallery on Saturday, an easy metro ride from Chatelet station, on the 14 train. Just a two-minute walk from the metro, the gallery was easily accessible.  

The pleasant white-washed gallery contained an impressive collection of contemporary art, mostly from the 1980s, 90s, and early 2000s. From bold works by Gilbert and George, to a mini-homage to Jean Michel Basquiat, which included a few of his works along with photos of him by other artists, photos by Martin Parr and Nan Goldin, to sculptures by artists Jean Michel Othoniel and Johan Creten, the collection ticks all the boxes of a serious, contemporary art collector. However, the choice of works seem very personal and driven by a certain   instinctive aesthetic, and not chosen by art advisors or influenced by the hot artists of the moment. The non-uniformity and eclectic choice of the pieces makes the collection a lot more interesting.  

The gallery is on two levels and on the second level, a separate room exhibits paintings and photographs for sale, including works by Kenneth Anger, Banger, Lucien Hervé, and David Lynch.  

The gallery also features a ground level bookshop with a solid stock of art books.
