An extraordinary fund for extraordinary times
Masraf Al Rayan QSC launched the Shari’a compliant ‘Al Rayan GCC Fund’. Based on continuous and rigorous top-down and bottom-up analysis, the Fund proposes to invest in a select number of companies across the GCC, based on a 3-5 year investment horizon.
GCC equities are the primary focus
The focus of the Fund is GCC equities which offer medium to long term value. However, the Fund can also invest in Shari’a-compliant GCC fixed income and money market instruments.
The Fund targets absolute, not relative, return. In establishing the Fund, Al Rayan Investment is targeting the professional investor looking for exceptional medium-term profits. The mandate for the Fund Manager is to be thoughtful, to seek outstanding investment opportunities and to discriminate on investment entry and exit points.
To help achieve impressive 3-5 year capital appreciation, investors will be ‘locked-in’ for the first eighteen-months as early withdrawals may impede the Fund’s investment strategy.
Low fees, enhanced performance
Fund fees have been kept at a minimum to enhance investor profits. Importantly, for the Fund Manager to earn a Performance Fee, absolute returns must exceed 36% over each 36-month period.
