Investors who focus entirely on stocks and bonds tend to miss out on opportunities that prove rewarding for others. Likewise do those investors who keep their activities confined to North America or Europe inevitably fail to realize the potential to be found elsewhere.
Al Masah Capital Management was founded in 2010 to help solve these two common problems at once. Focusing on a part of the world that lies beyond the radar of many investors, the firm brings region-specific expertise to bear on a wide range of investment goals and approaches. Dedicated to opening up alternative investment opportunities to its clients, the company goes well beyond the stocks and bonds with which the average investor is most familiar.
Providing Access to a Rapidly Growing Regional Economy
The region covering the Middle East and North Africa, or MENA, is one that is very much in a state of transition. While petroleum production and refining have buoyed the economies of many MENA nations for decades, most of these countries are now striving to broaden their economic foundations.
While there is a good deal of capital within MENA itself available to enable this process of transition, there is also steady demand for investment from outside. As a result, investors from all over the world are discovering that MENA is home to opportunities of kinds that would simply not be available in more familiar quarters.
Alternative Investments That Suit a Region in Flux
In other parts of the world, investors can generally count on having a wide variety of publicly traded equities and bonds to focus on if that is what they prefer. While many established MENA businesses are publicly held and issue bonds of their own, there are typically better ways to make the most of the region.
Firms like Al Masah are dedicated to helping investors discover and leverage these other kinds of opportunities. From private equity projects that inject much needed capital into privately held MENA businesses to real estate ventures, opportunities like these regularly produce the returns that investors seek. While it would rarely be realistic for an investor from elsewhere entirely to engage in such activities independently, working with the right investment firm can easily open all the necessary doors.
