The $200 million Arabian Real Estate Investment Trust (AREIT), a new investment opportunity jointly developed by HSBC Bank Middle East, and Daman, one of the regional leaders in asset management, was launched Saturday.
The fund will be managed by a joint venture company majority-owned by HSBC Bank Middle East Limited and Daman.
