LONDON: The British financier Amanda Staveley has come back from holiday on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia to handle some pressing matters for Arabian Gulf clients, and makes time for a breakfast meeting with Arab News. We meet at her substantial townhouse just off Park Lane in London’s swanky Mayfair. It has to be over breakfast because the rest of her day will be taken up with client meetings before she heads back to her family.
LONDON: The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the UK’s main market regulator, wants to change the country’s market rules to make it easier for foreign government-owned companies to list their shares in London. The new rules could help attract Saudi Aramco to the London Stock Exchange when the oil giant lists some of its shares in an estimated $100 billion initial public offering (IPO) next year, as well as other government-owned companies in the Middle East and elsewhere.
LONDON: The British investment community could not afford to miss out on the opportunity offered by a multibillion-dollar flotation of Saudi Aramco on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), despite reservations in some quarters about corporate governance and shareholder protection. Aramco — officially estimated as being worth $2 trillion — is considering global stock market locations as part of the plan for a sale of some of the company in 2018.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
