Morood's Private Equity (PE) division sources, executes, manages and exits direct private equity transactions. Our investments’ selection criterion is based solely on their value proposition, risk-return profile and synchronization with the firm’s objectives. Focusing on an investment’s merits rather than on certain geographies and sectors enables Morood to achieve its primary goal – providing superior absolute returns.
The Private Equity team has built its business and operating model around four fundamental principles:
Private Equity Sector Focus:
Healthcare: Morood has acquired a sizable portfolio of companies in the healthcare industry in order to capitalize on growing trends within this sector.
Tech, Media and Telecom (TMT): Morood has built a strong TMT portfolio and strives to stay at the forefront of this sector as TMT companies tend to offer attractive risk-adjusted returns.
Consumer: Morood currently invests in a broad mix of companies ranging from retailers to manufacturers of fast moving consumer goods.
Morood's Capital Markets (CM) division is specialized in short to medium term investments in public securities on international exchanges based on proprietary trading models and market research. The business trades in a number of financial instruments including equities, fixed income, commodities, foreign exchange and structured products. Capital Markets utilizes quantitative strategies coupled with fundamental analysis to maximize alpha returns on a risk-adjusted basis.
Capital Markets has two main functions:
In the near future, Capital Markets will be launching a hedge fund tailored to generate attractive targeted returns by building on its experience with various investment strategies, and opening the platform to co-investors.
Morood’s Special Situations (SSG) division sits in the cross hairs of the Private Equity and Capital Markets divisions. Utilizing its flexible nature, SSG exploits investments presented by opportunistic trends in the market. It operates in pre-IPO opportunities, distressed restructurings, structured products and short-term financings in both the private and public markets. Created to have a flexible pool of capital, SSG is capable of taking advantage of opportunities quickly where others cannot. Additionally, SSG capitalizes on opportunities outside of our core focus sectors i.e. Healthcare, Consumer and TMT, to incubate strong competencies for Private Equity.
Morood’s Real Estate (RE) division invests in residential and commercial real estate opportunities locally and globally. Morood views real estate as an essential asset class in its investment portfolio and considers exposure to real estate investments advantageous because the sector provides:
Morood’s investment team comprises top-tier professionals with broad-based competencies and an extensive background in global real estate management. Their expertise aligns seamlessly with Morood’s investment approach – depending purely on matching an opportunity with the risk-return profile of the firm and its co-investors.
The investment team constantly analyzes capital appreciation and/or yield driven opportunities. While our current investments in the Middle East region focus mainly on real estate construction and development, our global investments involve commercial properties and residential development projects.
To ensure successful implementation of our strategy and achievement of target returns based on a secure investment structure, we work with leading developers, legal and tax advisors, third-party service providers, and property financers.
Morood’s Global Research (GR) arm leverages a broad range of data, providing insight to the different divisions at Morood. GR produces relevant geographic, economic, market, sector and company research which equips our investment and trading teams with advanced decision making capabilities. This is due to reliable information availability and market color. Whether it’s providing updates on the U.S recovery, the Indonesian population boom, or the Japanese deregulation, Global Research keeps the investment and trading teams keep up to speed at all times.
Morood’s Trading division takes a step beyond to complement Morood’s core investment businesses. Specialized in providing a series of customized investment and consultancy services, it relies on its extensive knowledge and unique insights into the world of entrepreneurship, franchises, and financial investments. The division operates through Morood Trading, an affiliate of Morood Invest.
Morood Trading, an affiliate of Morood Invest, targets commercial and operational opportunities that fall outside the realm of Morood’s core business, i.e. financial investing. Franchises, start-up businesses and specialized consulting are examples of activities that can be categorized under Morood Trading. These activities are carefully guided by the same core principles of Morood.
