Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund Anchors NBK Capital Partners' Private Lending Fund

 Targeted US$ 300 Million Shari’ah Credit Opportunities Fund to Invest in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Select MENA Countries 

Riyadh, KSA – 10 February 2021:  NBK Capital Partners has announced the successful first closing of a targeted US$ 300 million Shari’ah credit fund anchored by Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund and other institutional investors. 
NBK Capital Partners employs a pioneering strategy for flexible, long-term direct lending launched in the wake of the global financial crisis to meet the financing needs of mid-sized firms unable to secure attractive financing terms. The new fund will provide flexible capital solutions to mid-market companies in the Middle East and build on the impressive track-record of credit investments achieved since 2009.
“We are proud to have secured the full faith and endorsement of one of the world’s largest and most respected sovereign wealth funds. For the PIF to play an anchor role on this US$ 300 million NBK Capital Partners Shari’ah Credit Opportunities Fund is not only the highest endorsement of NBK Capital Partners’ strength and capabilities but a clear indication of increasing investor confidence in the region’s private credit sector and its enormous potential for growth,” says Yaser Moustafa, Senior Managing Director of NBK Capital Partners. 
Led by Sikander Ahmed, Managing Director and Head of Private Credit, the private credit team at the firm will advise the Shari’ah Credit Fund on providing flexible financing solutions to private sector companies in Saudi Arabia, UAE and select adjacent markets. The funding gap for regional companies is significant due to changing regulations and inefficient capital markets, with these challenging conditions further exacerbated by the global COVID-19 pandemic. 
The Shari’ah Credit Fund is unique in that it combines the successful private credit track record of NBK Capital Partners with the mandate to invest in private negotiated Shari’ah-compliant credit investments. The Shari’ah Credit Fund is expected to make 10 to 12 investments of US$ 15 million to US$ 50 million throughout its eight-year life and to generate attractive cash yield and total returns. 

This institutional investment fund was developed from a long-running investment strategy, in response to demand from Shari’ah-compliant institutional investors in the region and in Asia. Fundraising is led by Ziad Nasr, Head of Business Development at NBK Capital Partners.
The DIFC-headquartered firm boasts a dedicated and seasoned team of investment professionals with more than a decade of experience in advising in MENA credit securities. The private credit team at NBK Capital Partners has pioneered advising on Shari’ah-compliant credit investments, with fourteen private credit investments to date.
