Alkhabeer Capital, a Saudi Arabian Shariah-compliant investment company, will launch a US$400m investment fund targeting assets in Saudi Arabia and Europe.

Alkhabeer Capital, a Saudi Arabian Shariah-compliant investment company, will launch a SAR1.5bn (US$400m) investment fund targeting assets in Saudi Arabia and Europe, the firm said in a statement.  

The Jeddah-based firm will raise three funds over two years targeting a total of SAR525m, including SAR125m for a residential development fund in the UK.

“We are considering more mature markets such as the US and Europe and we are in the process of identifying which markets we will tackle next and how,” Sherif Selim, director of asset management and head of real estate at Alkhabeer Capital, said in a statement.

The other two funds include a SAR150m residential development fund and a SAR250m industrial property development fund for “build to suit” situations, both of which are based in Saudi Arabia.

“The firm remains bullish about Saudi Arabian real estate. We believe that Saudi is and will remain the market with the most potential amongst the other GCC countries for many reasons: Saudi Arabia is the largest country in the GCC with strong business fundamentals and robust economic growth forecasts, which all combined make it a very attractive market place to investors,” said Selim.
