The Middle East can be a difficult place to raise capital from.
Family offices are not like their global counterparts. While they are well endowed, they often lack the sophisticated investment review structure of their European or American peers.
The pension market is nascent and only just beginning to emerge and the pure size of SWF mandates can often only accommodate the world’s biggest managers.
Yet every year for the past 18 years funds come to the region and successfully raise money at the Middle East Investment Summit.
Because in this region, relationships really matter. Fund managers who come with the right strategy with the intention to build long term partnerships can be successful. That is our story.
For nearly 2 decades we have been helping fund managers build relationships with the region’s biggest institutional and private investors.
Over the years we have hosted some of the world’s greatest money managers; John Paulson, Bill Ackman, Michael Hintze and the list goes on.
These names attend the Middle East Investment Summit because some of the world’s biggest investors are in attendance to look at new allocation strategies and mandates for the year ahead.
We have been fortunate to be the stewards of an event that for nearly two decades has reflected the psyche of Middle East institutional and private investors.
With over $3 trillion of wealth in annual attendance we are looking for innovative fund managers and solution providers who can help investors diversify their portfolios.
