QInvest's SQN Income Fund oversubscribed   

The Peninsula - 20 March, 2017

QInvest, Qatar’s leading investment group, announced today that it successfully launched its QInvest SQN Income Fund, with it being oversubscribed.

The Fund, which is a Sharia’a compliant closed-ended fund, provides a unique opportunity for investors to access income generating assets in developed markets. It aims to pay out a net yield of 7 percent per annum on a monthly basis and has a targeted IRR of between 8 percent and 9 percent, with a tenure of 5 years. The Fund was launched in collaboration with SQN Capital Management, a global asset-based investor and fund manager.

The Fund invests in the leasing and financing of business-essential, long-life, revenue producing equipment across developed markets. The fund is designed to deliver non-correlated returns through diversified investments across various industries.

On the back of the strong demand from investors, QInvest plans to launch another fund in the same series later this year. Tamim Hamad Al Kawari, CEO of QInvest, said: “In response to the growing investor demand for more innovative, income-generating, Islamic products, QInvest is proud to expand its product offering and bring to the market a fund that provides attractive returns and a regular income distribution, all within a relatively conservative investment profile. It also provides investors with concentrated portfolios with means of diversification and risk mitigation”.

Dr Ataf Ahmed, Managing Director and Head of Asset Management at QInvest, said: “This partnership with SQN allows us to offer our investors a compelling investment opportunity, which combines our Islamic structuring expertise with SQN’s equipment leasing proficiency. SQN is an asset finance and equipment leasing specialist with a long track record in the equipment leasing sector.”

Jeremiah J Silkowski, President and Chief Executive Officer at SQN said: “SQN is proud to be partnering with the globally recognized Asset Management team at QInvest to bring high-quality programs to sophisticated investors seeking regular income with downside protection. This collaboration with QInvest provides us with an exciting opportunity to develop a distinctive investment proposition for investors in Qatar and across the GCC.

We look forward to a long and collaborative partnership.”
