Strong results across all its core business operations comprising new investment acquisitions, realizations and fundraising, and a resulting growing cushion of surplus capital and liquidity, has enabled Investcorp to increase ordinary shareholder dividends to 24 cents per share, from 15 cents per share last year.
Over the period, the firm saw near record levels of activity across the business, driven by a series of significant transactions and solid fundraising activity in the US and the Gulf including $810 million (£622.14 million) in AuM acquired through the acquisition of SSARIS Advisors’ Hedge Fund of Funds business in November 2015.
This continued fundraising momentum underlines the strong appetite of the Firm’s clients for attractive diversified alternative investment opportunities. The Firm’s investment in broadening its Gulf office network to be closer to its investors has been a key driving factor of its performance and has helped the Firm in becoming one of the most active private investment institutions in the GCC.
