Saudi Arabia's securities market regulator said on Wednesday that it would permit off-market trading of shares in companies which had been suspended or delisted from the stock exchange. The Capital Market Authority has issued rules covering such trade and will immediately start receiving applications from companies to conduct it, the authority said in a statement on the exchange's website.

The head of India's state social security fund says it has "no option" but to change its rules and put money into riskier investments by buying stocks for the first time to seek higher returns. K.K. Jalan, chief of the Employees' Provident Fund Organisation (EPFO), said that to get better returns, the fund with about $125 billion in assets needs to diversify investments, the bulk of which are in government debt.
India's benchmark 10-year bond hit its highest level in more than 11 months on Friday, boosted by positive sentiment following the US Federal Reserve's stance on rates, but the 120-billion-rupee debt sale later in the session pushed prices off intraday highs. Traders expect the rally in debt prices to sustain on hopes foreign investors would continue to bet on India despite some concerns about US interest rates.
Warren Buffett built a fortune of nearly $60 billion from astute stock picking, but when the 83-year-old dies, the vast majority of the money he leaves his wife will be parked in a fund that simply moves in step with an index. The afterlife plans of the man nicknamed the Sage of Omaha, revealed in a letter to his investors earlier this year, underline a sea change afoot in the investment industry.
Standard & Poor's said on Friday that it had made a number of methodological changes that were set to push down the ratings of Spanish, Italian and other euro zone periphery-sourced covered bonds and Asset-Backed Securities. The moves will take immediate effect and could prove a headache for the European Central Bank, which is about to embark on a programme of purchases of ABS and covered bonds and would rather buy up what are perceived as higher-quality assets.
Indonesia's finance ministry sold 2.870 trillion rupiah ($245.05 million) of Islamic bonds at an auction on Tuesday, above an indicative target of 1.5 trillion rupiah, the ministry's debt office said.

The chief executive of the clearinghouse for all US stock options will retire from the company at the end of the year after one year in the role, the company said on Friday. Chicago-based OCC, formerly known as the Options Clearing Corp, did not immediately say why CEO Michael Cahill, 56, is retiring or what his plans are. He has worked at the clearinghouse for 32 years and was promoted to CEO from president, chief operating officer and treasurer on January 1.
