Private Equity

In 2020, the Private Equity Department was established to target companies in the MENA region with a focus on GCC, investing in various sectors and activities. This department looks for unconventional capital structures in the form of private debt and private equity in relation to risk and corporate growth. The goal of diving into the private debt market is to achieve stable cashflows as well as having a clear timeline for an exit strategy through strict deal-making to protect its investments.

Regarding private equity, the goal of the department is to achieve long-term returns in targeted companies and draw clear strategies to grow these companies to maximize their values when exiting. The typical timeframe for investing (investment horizon) in private equity is 5-7 years.
