The National Investor to launch $500m fund

The National Investor, Abu Dhabi's leading investment firm has decided to introduce $500 million (Dh1.83 billion) fund in November with the aim to pump in Middle East and North African blue-chips.

The sources informed that European institutional investors will be targeted by Dublin-domiciled TNI MENA Blue Chip Equity fund.
The sources further informed that this the first time a local player from Abu Dhabi will introduce a Dublin-based fund subject to European regulations.

The MENA region is expected to rise faster than any other emerging market and is an arena investors should be eyeing at. It will also set up the door for other domestic players to follow.
