Qatari Diar

Qatari Diar Real Estate Company was established in 2005 by the Qatar Investment Authority, the sovereign wealth fund of the State of Qatar. Headquartered northeast of the capital, Doha, on the coast of the Arabian Gulf, Qatari Diar was entrusted to support Qatar’s growing economy and to coordinate the country’s real estate development priorities. Its vision is for real estate that improves quality of life and contributes to the community. The company’s first project, Lusail City, was launched in December of that year and quickly went on to gain tremendous praise for its innovative approach to real estate. The progressive, self-contained city is the largest single development to be undertaken in the State of Qatar. Qatari Diari has been working with Massar International on building “Rawabi”, the first Palestinian planned city.
In November 2009, Qatari Diar reached another significant milestone in its history with the establishment of the Qatar Railways Development Company. This company was created to bring Qatar’s vision for developing Qatar’s extensive national railway network and the region’s first fully integrated railway system to life. Parallel to its significant infrastructure developments within Qatar, the company has been committed to bringing the Qatari Diar vision to the international stage. Today, Qatari Diar has established itself as one of the world’s most trusted and respected real estate companies because of its commitment to quality, local community, partnerships and hallmark sustainability. As of January 2012, Qatari Diar is capitalized at US$4 billion and has more than 49 projects in planning or development planning in Qatar and in 29 countries around the world with a combined value of over US$35 billion.

Soros Economic Development Fund (SEDF)

The Soros Economic Development Fund (SEDF) supports economic development in post-conflict countries and in nations transitioning to democracy. It promotes economic opportunities and access to information, products and services for underserved populations. SEDF invests in sustainable businesses or initiatives that strive to alleviate poverty by creating jobs and revitalizing deteriorating communities. It is a nonprofit private foundation that is part of the Open Society Foundations, a network of charitable foundations created by investor and philanthropist George Soros. Established in 1997, SEDF has over $200 million in investment capital and employs 15 people in New York, Budapest, Freetown, Johannesburg and Nairobi. SEDF is an anchor investor in Siraj Palestine Fund One; the first private equity fund in the history of Palestine, managed by Siraj Fund Management Company, a subsidiary of Massar.

SEDF focuses on three primary sectors: financial services, agribusiness and logistics. Historically, the Fund concentrated on investments that broadened access to financial products and services for underserved populations, with an emphasis on expanded access for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs). Recently, SEDF broadened its scope to include agribusiness. SEDF believes that the agriculture sector has one of the greatest potentials to assist the rural poor by generating jobs, increasing food security and improving income levels. The goal is to invest along the value chain—from seed to market delivery.

To leverage its work and create greater impact in the financial services and agribusiness sectors, SEDF invests in logistics projects that improve the flow of goods and information. For instance, in the case of agriculture, this could include investments along the agriculture value chain such as access to refrigeration, transportation and post-harvest processing.SEDF is further expanding its scope to include both fund investments and innovative technology platforms that enable wider access to information and services for its target populations. Investments amounts range between $500K and $10 million. Visit Website
