New private equity fund in Kuwait
KIPCO Asset Management Company (KAMCO) has announced the closing of a new private equity fund, Kuwait Private Equity Opportunities Fund, which will be focused on investing in private companies in Kuwait.
The fund, with more than US$ 45 million in commitments to be invested over the next four years, is structured in line with international standards for private equity funds.
