There is a NEW Alternative Investments industry in the Gulf region emerging after the tough ride experienced since the beginning of the crisis in late 2008. Investors are still very cautious with their decision as where to invest their money, but they are definitively back in the market. There are challenges with fund raising, issues of transparency and liquidity, new regulations around the world which needs to be discussed and addressed by both investors and fund managers.
The fact is that there is still a high liquidity in the Gulf region and will remain that way for a foreseeable future. The oil prices are in a range of $70-80 per barrel, which means that extra cash will be available to local private and institutional investors for allocation with alternative investment funds.
Our goal is to create a market place for all companies in the Alternatives space to be able meet and network and hopefully conduct business. AIS is a place:
• for fund managers to launch and present their strategies and funds,
• for investors to do fund selection,
• a platform for capital introductions and
• a marketplace for service providers to present their products and services to the industry.
