Number of active GPs in Gulf Cooperation Council doubles as domestic opportunities emerge — Preqin reports

Saudi Arabia holds lion’s share of alternative AUM in the GCC at $10.0bn

LONDON, Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Preqin, the global leader in alternative assets data, tools, and insights, published its Private Capital in the Gulf Cooperation Council 2023: Preqin Territory Guide report. The report explores how the alternatives market in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC)* is increasingly looking to domestic investment opportunities, beyond oil.

Years of growth paint a picture of optimism

The GCC’s assets under management (AUM) in private capital hit $1bn in December 2008, reaching $5.8bn as of December 2021, before more than doubling to $12.3bn in 2022, according to Preqin data. Saudi Arabia holds the lion’s share of this AUM in Dec 2022 at $10.0bn, followed by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) AUM with $2.1bn.

Preqin data and insights in the report point to how the GCC is emerging as a potential destination for capital deployment. This trend is demonstrated by the growing number of active fund managers and headline deals being completed by investors such as Blackstone, CVC Capital Partners, Silver Lake, and Apollo. Furthermore, the 529 active GPs in GCC member countries as of 2023 has nearly doubled from 268 in 2018.

An important factor driving change across alternative assets in the GCC is the role of the countries’ sovereign wealth funds (SWFs). Middle East-based SWFs, with combined AUM of more than $3.7tn as of March 2023, are among the biggest investors in alternative assets. Average allocations in 2022 surged to an unprecedented 44% of AUM in December 2022, representing an increase from 22% from December 2021.

David Dawkins, report author, at Preqin says, “As GCC leaders focus on domestic employment opportunities for their young population, the region’s SWFs are becoming more focused on domestic investments. Even a small uptick of the domestic fund alternatives allocations would have a transformative impact on the GCC’s private capital GPs.”

Key findings from the Private Capital in the Gulf Cooperation Council 2023 report include: 

  • Venture capital: AUM for venture capital in the GCC reached $2.9bn as of December 2022, up from $1.5bn in December 2021. A change in investor sentiment towards the region has attracted capital into venture capital funds, with dry powder quadrupling from $400mn in December 2021 to $1.63bn at the end of 2022.
  • Fundraising: In 2022, 23 venture capital funds closed with aggregate capital raised of around $2.5bn. In real estate, between September 2021 and September 2023 year-to-date (YTD), 81 funds have closed with an aggregate capital raised of $2.3bn. And in private equity, between 2018 and 2020, 38 funds closed at an aggregate raise of $1.7bn. In other words, 142 funds in the GCC, between 2018 and 2023, raised a total $6.5bn.
  • Private equity: AUM for private equity in the GCC reached $2.2bn in December 2022, up from $1.25bn in December 2021.
  • Private debt: Half of the GCC’s LPs (50%) surveyed by Preqin earlier this year stated they plan to increase allocations to private debt, compared with just 25% looking to decrease. Not only is this more than any other alternative asset class, it is a full six percentage points higher than our poll of investors globally.

LONDON, Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Henley & Partners, the ‘firm of global citizens’ and leader in residence and citizenship advisory, has partnered with the leading ultra-luxury lifestyle management and card services group, Insignia, to create a distinctive and exclusive membership offering. Henley Global Citizens is a bespoke ‘by invitation only’ service designed to meet the specific needs of wealthy transnational families, entrepreneurs, and investors who do business, invest, and live internationally and who identify themselves as citizens of the world.

Besides priority access, personal introductions, and complimentary consultations with trusted international banks, leading private client lawyers and other top industry professionals in all key jurisdictions worldwide, the Henley Global Citizens offering includes a membership card, which is also a Visa payment card for large, unlimited payments and cash withdrawals, and to make international wire transfers in major currencies.

Dr. Christian H. Kaelin, Group Chairman of Henley & Partners, says bringing together the high-profile clients of both businesses and combining their expertise to create a unique and exceptional international advisory and service offering is a logical extension for ‘the firm of global citizens’. “For those of us who see ourselves as global citizens, we are not foregoing our other identities, commitment and affiliations to our own countries, culture, religious and even political beliefs. These continue to give us meaning and add value to our lives. But because we are living in an intimately connected and interdependent world, and operating in a global market, we have added another layer of global identity, interest and responsibility. The Henley Global Citizens membership acknowledges and supports this identity and lifestyle in a very practical, everyday way that can add tremendous value for its members.”

Nada T. Rouviere, President of Insignia Group, stated, “Our partnership with Henley & Partners represents a new era in luxury lifestyle management.
