The investment management for the Arab element of the Fund will be managed by Shuaa Asset Management, while Forsyth Partners will be managing the Asian portion of the portfolio.

The fund will provide exposure to different markets, industries and sectors through investments in a selection of best of breed funds.

The asset allocation will be determined at quarterly investment meetings.
