Direct Investments

The Direct Investments Department invests directly in listed and unlisted companies across the globe, with a particular emphasis on the MENA Region, focused on:

  • Creating a concentrated portfolio of highly uncorrelated securities reflecting the broad nature of investment opportunities the Council is exposed to. In this respect, investment ideas are considered for their own intrinsic characteristics rather than within a portfolio context
  • Monitoring and optimizing the value of the Council's legacy portfolio consisting of 12 investments in local financial institutions and other prominent companies
