JEDDAH: AlKhair Capital Saudi Arabia, a major Saudi-based investments institution, has launched the AlKhair Capital IPOs Fund.
The fund aims at capital growth in the long term and investors will be able to invest with an initial minimum subscription of SR10,000. For the fund investment purposes, all companies will be compliant with AlKhair Capital KSA's Shariah standards and guidelines.
“The fund is designed to achieve long-term capital growth, as well as achieving a performance that exceeds the guiding index performance (AlKhair Capital IPO Index); the fund’s first launch period is from May 13 to June 1, 2015,” said Khalid Al-Mulhim, CEO of AlKhair Capital.
“The fund invests its assets mainly in primary markets, along with investing in recently-listed companies. These need to have been listed for less than three years in the secondary markets of the Kingdom, the GCC and MENA regions.
The fund prospectus, terms, and conditions can be viewed and accessed through Tadawul website or on AlKhair Capital Saudi Arabia’s website. AlKhair is working toward granting access to its channels and products to all investors.
