In 2019 Euromoney turns 50.

Our publication was founded in 1969 to cover the growth of cross-border finance. Over five decades, Euromoney has been there to cover every advance and every challenge along the way. We have prided ourselves on our ability to get to know the people and the institutions driving banking, finance and capital markets forward. What a 50 years it has been.

Euromoney's 50th anniversary gives us a unique opportunity to take the pulse of global banking today. Throughout the course of 2019, we will publish a series of special reports reflecting on 50 years in the core pillars of Euromoney's coverage. In each report, we will look at what has brought banking to where it is today and discuss where the industry goes from here.

Can the Gulf break the habit of half a century?

Less than five years after Euromoney began, the Arab oil embargo gave international finance a shot in the arm and provided an extraordinary windfall to the Gulf, but as the oil boom has repeatedly turned to bust, commodity cycles have laid bare the vacuity of the region’s diversification programmes.

Middle East: Has Islamic banking set a new standard?

Islamic finance has come a long way over the past few decades, maturing into a $2.4 trillion industry, but some long-term problems remain and the recent wrangle over a Dana Gas sukuk shows credibility is still an issue.
