Al Bawader's mission is to maximize financial returns for our investor by investing and working closely with companies that have high growth potential.
Al Bawader will invest in a diversified portfolio, including manufacturing, service, and technology companies. Al Bawader will invest in revenue generating companies with proven products and a sustainable value proposition, as well as in pre-revenue generating companies that can provide compelling validation of their business opportunity.
Al Bawader will favor companies that are export-oriented including, in particular, companies that can profitably deliver products to expanding markets across the Middle East and the Arab world.
Al Bawader intends to make primarily equity investments in portfolio companies. However, where appropriate, Al Bawader may also provide convertible loans and use other financial instruments and debt, equity or hybrid securities in its investment activity.
Al Bawader is an active investor. In addition to generally requiring Board representation, Al Bawader will leverage the collective business networks, experience and capabilities of our partners and investors to support our portfolio companies in developing effective recruitment, product, financial, marketing and sales strategies.
