GBCORP believes that the long-term outlook for strong and patient private equity players will reap substantial rewards, despite current global and regional challenges and side-ways market movements. The bank targets deeply discounted businesses globally and hedges against further value erosions by primarily considering defensive sector businesses that yield stable and predictable cash flow. As a secondary focus and for diversification purposes, GBCORP considers opportunistic investments in other sectors with different parameter sets. To ensure that businesses and business balance sheets adhere to Shari’a, GBCORP looks for buyout or board representation as well as co-investment opportunities.
Target private equity sectors of primary interest include healthcare, food and beverages, agriculture, retail, infrastructure, telecom, financial/business services, education and real estate.
Our regional/country focus is the GCC and selective global markets.
