Consolidated volumes slip 3.8pc: DP Worl



DUBAI: Dubai's DP World, the world's third biggest port operator, said yesterday its consolidated container volumes slipped 3.8 percent in 2013 after the firm sold one of its Hong Kong assets, but rose 0.7 percent on a gross like-for-like basis



DP World, one of the more profitable assets of Dubai World, said terminals controlled by the company handled 26 million TEU - or twenty-foot equivalent container units - during the year. This compares to 27.1 million TEU in the year-earlier period



But gross volumes - which include more terminals - rose slightly in like-for-like terms, DP World said. The port operator has been selling assets globally, exiting markets where it does not have a significant presence and seeking to redeploy funds in fast-growing markets



Lazard expands Middle East asset managemen



DUBAI: Lazard Asset Management (LAM) said it would expand its Middle East operations by hiring the former regional asset management team of ING Group NV, which resigned from the Dutch firm in Dubai earlier this week



A subsidiary of US-based Lazard, LAM will focus on equities in the Middle East and North Africa and frontier markets with the Dubai-based team of six



Farah Foustok will be managing director and senior executive officer at LAM's Dubai office, while Fadi Al Said will be director and portfolio manager, Lazard said



The team resigned en masse on Monday from ING Investments Middle East, and the Dutch company, still struggling to pay back the state after a 2008 bailout, then said it was shutting its regional asset management operations.
