CW 413: Investing in Dubai with Jawad S. Mian Editor of ‘Stray Reflections’ & Founder of The Good Society Fund
Jawad S. Mian is the Founder and Chief Investment Officer of TGSF (The Good Society Fund) Advisors. He's also the Editor of the "Stray Reflections" monthly investment newsletter. Based in Dubai, Mian is an expert on Dubai, Qatar and Middle Eastern investments.
