The Saudi sovereign wealth fund PIF has created a new unit to invest in industries across Iraq, with a capital of $3 billion and headquarters in Saudi Arabia, the new unit's acting CEO said on Thursday.
The new Saudi-Iraqi Investment Company is one of six regional investment vehicles the fund said it would establish in Iraq, Jordan, Bahrain, Sudan, Oman, and Egypt, aligning with its strategy to seek new investments in the Middle East and North Africa.
The companies will target investments of up to $24 billion, in sectors including infrastructure, real estate, mining, healthcare, food and agriculture, manufacturing, and tech, the PIF said in October.
