Private Equity Funds

The Private Equity Department makes investments that generate returns in excess of those generated by the public markets to compensate for the high level of risk associated with such long-term illiquid investments.
 
We have started the Private Equity Funds Investments activity in 1997, and carried it until 2008 when we decided to cease making new commitments. Over that period, we have committed to 66 funds.
 
As of December 31, 2019, total assets under management were KD  6.214 Million ( USD 20.506 Million).
 
Markaz offers asset management services in four parts: investment advisory services, GCC, international investment and private equities. We provide our clients carefully selected investment opportunities that achieve the balance between profit and risk. As we know Client satisfaction is the utmost objective, we create the balanced basket of investment opportunities for company’s customers.
 
Markaz holds the leadership position in the field of the investment industry in Kuwait and has been able to build a profitable ground and strategy to continue growing for the coming years.
