Private Equity is a cornerstone asset
class we have worked with since our inception. Our focus
on Private Equity has enabled us to develop key
outsourcing solutions to a wide range of clients that
support the management of their funds and special
purpose vehicles. Private equity is one of the most
rewarding asset classes. Noon Investment Company W.L.L invests with the top tier global and
private equity fund managers in the MENA region, Europe,
North/South America and Asia with established track
records; largely in growth equity, mezz finance, LBO or
distressed buy-out strategies. This is depending on
guidance from the Investment Committee and allocation
opportunities within the portfolio. The private equity
investments cover most industries/sectors and the
rationale for investing in this asset class is driven by
the desire to improve the risk/reward composition of the
portfolio by generating a higher absolute return along
with portfolio diversification.
The firm understands from the onset what private equity as an asset class entails in terms of longevity of the investment horizon and the impact of the J-curve on cash flows. The private equity team of the firm conducts a thorough due diligence prior to presenting the opportunity to the Investment Committee. They have also developed a robust performance review and monitoring mechanism. The Investment Committee of the company continues to be mindful of ensuring that the mix of private equity investments, vintage years and underlying diversification works to the company's advantage.
