Bahrain Firm Launches Nanotechnology Fund

Jun 25 2008 | 11:30am ET

Arbah Global Gulf, the Bahrain-based investment arm of Arbah Capital, has launched a private equity fund that focuses on nanotechnology.

The new sharia-compliant vehicle, the Arbah Nanotechnology Fund, will invest in shares and equity-related securities of companies involved in nanotechnology. Portfolio manager James Berlino said the fund will focus on companies that can break through the barriers of capacity shortages and limitations in everything from food and energy to computer networking and storage.

“So much of what we do in the future will be involved with this technology that the opportunities are potentially limitless,” said Dhafer Alqahtani, chief executive of Arbah Global Gulf. “If investment is about discovering opportunities for growth, then nanotechnology is an obvious choice for those with an eye to the future.”
