Sovereign Wealth Fund Joint-Venture Business Planning

Confidential Client | UAE | 2006–2006

For two sovereign wealth funds from different countries in the Middle East, we created the business plan for a joint venture investment vehicle.

The assignment required understanding the MENA investment market for both debt and equity investments, the best practices for managing complex government-backed joint ventures and the potential operating models for such an entity.

The project’s results allowed for the parliaments of each nation to approve the fund, creating one of the few investment funds in the Middle East that can invest in two markets as a domestic investor in both.
