FIM global sukuk strategy

Real estate

Our income strategies focus on the acquisition of investment grade income-oriented real estate in established sub-markets in the GCC in asset classes having confirmed intrinsic demand and strong tenants. Our opportunistic strategies seek out development opportunities for investment grade product within the GCC. Our focus is on the build-to-core and value-add spaces where we can exploit existing market gaps driven by high demand and substantial undersupply, as well as the build-to-suit space where income is secured by long-leases with creditworthy tenants.

FIM real estate strategies

Our private real estate funds include a fully invested multi-asset core fund, a build-to-core student housing community fund, and single asset funds which own long-let logistics and long-let community retail properties.

Our publicly listed fund, Oman REIT Fund, is a multi-asset REIT invested in residential, office, retail and industrial real estate asset classes.

Private markets

Our private investments strategy takes a long-term view on investments, developing strong relationships with our investee companies and driving value creation. This allows us to build a strong foundation for long term growth and stability.

Private investments

We source opportunities through an extensive network of relationships in the markets where we operate. We apply a thematic bottom-up approach to identify a high conviction portfolio of companies that belong to structural themes that we believe are unique to our markets.

We have helped our investee companies enter new markets, optimize their capital structure and in many cases, accelerated the journey from private to public markets.
