Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) and Mumtalakat, the sovereign wealth fund of the Kingdom of Bahrain, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to expand cooperation and enable new as well as promising investment opportunities in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

According to the statement, the MoU provides multiple benefits to PIF and its portfolio companies, by providing investment opportunities aimed at enhancing PIF’s investments in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

Through this agreement, PIF seeks to increase its investments in multiple targeted sectors in the Kingdom of Bahrain, while Mumtalakat aims to explore attractive investment opportunities for cooperation and partnership with PIF.

As per the statement, the MoU follows the establishment of the Saudi-Bahraini Investment Company, a PIF subsidiary, which aims to invest up to $5 billion in multiple promising sectors in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

It also enables the achievement of sustainable returns that further contribute to maximizing PIF’s assets and diversifying the economy in line with the objectives of Saudi Vision 2030,” Al-Humied added.
