INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

NI Capital’s Investment Management division focuses on promoting impact investing, sustainable development of Egypt and promoting private investment in the country. To that end, the division manages funds on behalf of the government, institutional investors, financial institutions and high net worth clients to invest in a diverse range of asset classes across private and public equities, real estate and fixed income instruments. By utilizing our team’s extensive experience across several asset classes, we search for investments geared towards the advancement of key industries while providing our clients access to investment opportunities tailored to meet their risk/return and investment horizon profile.
