Wall Street executives to return to 'Davos in the desert' as outrage over Khashoggi fades

Some of the biggest names on Wall Street are expected to appear at Saudi Arabia's Future Investment Initiative (FII) this week, more than two years after many boycotted the conference over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

This year, the economic conference lists executives and leaders from the Carlyle Group, Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley, among 140 international speakers who will attend either in person or virtually, according to the New York Times.

Tom Barrack, executive chairman of Colony Capital and an ally of former US President Donald Trump, is also going to be in attendance, the Times reported. Barrack was forced to apologise in 2019 after suggesting it was a "mistake" to criticise Riyadh over Khashoggi's killing.
