TNI’s private equity practice is one of the oldest and most respected franchises in the GCC. Currently TNI invests in attractive private equity opportunities through:
(1) Etqaan Shariah Fund, a buyout and turnaround fund
(2) TNI Growth Capital Fund I (GCF I), a growth and buyout fund
(3) Proprietary investments
Our successful private equity track record spans over 18 years, the longest of any institutional private equity house in the region. We have generated a gross realized IRR of over 60% on GCFI and a gross realized IRR of over 35% on our proprietary investments. The extensive experience of our professionals enhances our ability to structure and execute highly complex transactions in an expedient fashion.
We have invested in a diversified portfolio of assets including healthcare, consumer, retail, oil & gas, contracting, real estate, financial services, manufacturing, technology, media, telecom, business services, and others. Through different market cycles, our processes have demonstrated resilience and far-sightedness, both in terms of entry as well as exit decisions. Our investment team has shown a deep understanding of investment nuances, combined with regional know-how and relationships, to generate extra-ordinary returns for our investor base.
In recognition of our private equity achievements, we were awarded the “Best Private Equity House” in the Middle East in 2010 by Banker Middle East, having won the same award in 2005. We also won the “Best Investor in Healthcare” by MENA Investors Summit and featured as a finalist for “Best Private Equity firm in the Middle East” from Banker Magazine in 2008, and finalist for “Best Private Equity firm in the GCC” from Terra Pin awards.
