FOR A BETTER FUTURE
Eleven years on, we continue with our mandate to grow and diversify the Kingdom of Bahrain’s wealth, investing for a better future for many generations to come. With our active partnership approach, we remain committed to building a diversified portfolio both in terms of sectors and geography.
In 2017, we maintained our profitability for the fifth year in a row, which not only reflects the strength of our investment approach, but also how we continued to build on the momentum gained in the previous years.
